Academy for a Learning Democracy


Democracy in times of Corona. How can democracy function even in such times of crisis? And how can democracy be part of the solution and management of the COVID-19 crisis and all its serious consequences?
These questions we are discussing under the topic crisis-governance.

Here you will find all articles, events and documents on the topic of crisis-governance as well as democracy and corona.

Crisis governance deals with the way in which crises are handled and how they are handled: In other words, how we make good, sustainable and appropriate decisions under massive pressure, develop solutions and implement them together. Crises are usually highly complex and overwhelm the usual conditions and routines. Therefore, they often require unusual, innovative solutions and methods. In order to find and implement them, we have to unfold the full potential of our society - the co-creative potential that is not in but between us, people and institutions. How can this be achieved? What possibilities, tools and methods are available to us? This is exactly what crisis-governance is all about.  

A more detailed explanation of crisis-management you can find in the article below.
