The traditional democratic model seems to be increasingly more incapable of responding to contemporary issues. Arguably, democracy as a concept is undermined by secessionist underlying political movements and by the authoritarian connotation of populist political actors. On top of all this, phenomena such as organised crime and corruption, along with the overwhelming presence of technology and of a global market, contribute to hinder the values and norms that determine a healthy democracy. In lights of the growth of a new supranational European democracy, the Fondazione Ernesto Balducci promotes a holistic evaluation of these contemporary issues.
