6. May 2024

The Digital Democracy Workshop is co-organized by the Democracy Community of the Digital Society Initiative and the Digital Democracy Lab of the University of Zurich. We invite paper submissions on the relationship between digital technology and democracy, broadly understood. The workshop aims to facilitate exchange between scholars from different disciplines working on these issues.

We invite paper submissions on the relationship between digital technology and democracy, broadly understood. We are particularly interested in topics such as political communication and public opinion, e-government and public administration, AI and governance, civic tech and political participation, the regulation of tech platforms, and state repression and surveillance, among others. We welcome submissions using different methodological approaches to study these topics.

 

This workshop is co-organized by the Democracy Community of the Digital Society Initiative and the Digital Democracy Lab (https://digdemlab.io/) at the University of Zurich. It aims to facilitate exchange among scholars from different substantive fields working on these topics. We particularly encourage early-career researchers and those belonging to groups traditionally underrepresented in the field to apply.

 

Workshop attendance is free and is open to both paper presenters and non-presenters, but registration is required and subject to seat availability. The workshop will take place in Zurich and all presenters are expected to attend in person.

 

The deadline to submit paper abstracts for the workshop is 2 June 2024. Please find the Call for Papers at this link: CfP-Digital-Democracy-Workshop-2024. Acceptance notifications will be sent by 15 July 2024.

 

Registration for non-paper presenters will be open from 1 September to 14 October 2024. Please note that co-authors have to register separately as non-presenters if they wish to attend the workshop. We provide a limited number of travel grants for junior scholars; more information will be provided upon acceptance.
