Course Description:

This course is designed for students who specialise in History, Philosophy or Politics. The discourses about political participation, the relation between the individual and the state and the legitimacy of state power are as old as human forms of civilisation.

We will engage in the writings about republicanism which will cover the development of the main theories leading to the current debate about democracy in Europe and the issue of a European constitution.
