What happens to citizens when democracy is under threat? Do they uphold liberal democratic norms or abandoning them for intolerance? Do they mobilize or de-active? Do they rallying around the flag or embrace diverse and inclusive notions of national belonging? Answering these questions are imperative for diagnosing the breadth of contemporary democratic crisis in the US and beyond. This workshop brings together a variety of scholars--from Political Science to Sociology and beyond--to examine the effect of democratic crisis on everyday citizens, and what role citizens play in repairing or exacerbating further erosion.
