About the Cluster

This research cluster aims to bring together scholars to co-ordinate and promote theoretical and empirical research in the broad areas of democracy and governance. It will offer a multi-disciplinary discursive space for scholars researching different theories and practices of democracy and governance. The cluster establishes a network of scholars in these broad areas, bringing them together to facilitate opportunities for research collaboration in the form of seminars, conferences, publications and joint funding bids.
