lucernaforum is ready to DEPART

The Research Hub for Democracy and Participation (DEPART) combines research competencies in the field of democratic participation and participatory inclusion. Particular attention is paid to the exchange between academia and civil society in order to contribute to a fact-based and rational discourse.

As current fields of application, the DEPART Research Hub focuses on the establishment of participatory processes to promote sustainable development and the issue of inclusion and exclusion of different actors in the democratic constitutional state.
