The essence of democratic backsliding in the European Union: deliberation and rule of law


Pieter de Wilde is Professor of Political Science at the Department of Sociology and Political Science at NTNU. His research addresses political conflict over European integration and globalization, Euroscepticism as well as public debate in mass media, the internet, and parliamentary settings. Currently, he studies public discourses about democracy in Europe as partner in RECONNECT (Horizon 2020), unelected representatives and their impact on liberal democracy as principal investigator of the UNREP project, and on what social media reveal about our political opinions as principal investigator of the project Trondheim Analytica. https://www.ntnu.edu/employees/pieter.dewilde
