The research group for studies in democracy, power and citizenship, DEM
The research group has broad subject expertise comprising political science, social work, sociology and ecological economics. There is close cooperation with society, thus being able to disseminate new knowledge where it can be of use.
Worldwide migration, disputed globalisation and populist counter-movements raise new questions of democracy, power and citizenship. Established theories are put to the test and need to be reviewed, supplemented and replaced by others. The DEM group’s research focuses on these challenges.
Ongoing research projects
The project will supply the city of Västerås the necessary and sufficient means to better plan a socially sustainable neighbourhood.
Project manager at MDH: Terence Fell
