About the Lecture: Should the EU should be conceived as a demoicracy, namely a “Union of peoples who govern together, but not as one”. The demoi of Europe recognise that they affect one another’s democratic health, and hence establish a union to guarantee their freedom qua demoi – which most demoicrats cash out as non-domination. This is more than intergovernmentalism, because the demoi govern together on these matters. However, if the union aims at protecting the freedom of the different European demoi, it cannot do so by replacing them with a “superdemos”, as federalists want. This talk will discuss the idea of the EU as a demoicracy. In particular we will look at the institutional choice between intergovernmentalism and federalism.

Our precarious times call for a rethinking and renewal of the shared underpinnings of an open, diverse, and inclusive democratic society. To support this process, the Institute of Philosophy is offering a lecture series with leading thinkers who are confronting the challenges and chances that we are facing in all dimensions of life. The idea of this series is to develop a culture of reason, reflection, and responsibility by bringing fundamental global debates to the heart of the campus. The series is about connecting philosophical enquiry to pragmatic action.
