  • Bhutan Centre for Media and Democracy

    In 2008, Bhutan embarked on a journey of democratic transition making it the youngest democracy of its time. The transition to democracy was soon followed by the proliferation of media in the country which ushered in a new era of media and democracy in Bhutan. The Bhutan Centre for Media and Democracy was then established to nurture and improve the standard of the existing media in the country which would eventually foster the culture of democracy. BCMD is one of the first registered Civil Society Organisation in Bhutan which works with a cross section of society on issues that concern youth, environment, society, governance and education, using media as a modus operandi.

  • Digital Democracy | Carl Miller | TEDxAthens

  • Can Democracy in Europe be saved?

    "A Quality Democracy for a New State" is a video summary of the most recent study by the Centre Maurits Coppieters, focusing on direct democracy and the democratic drafting of constitutions. The author of the paper, Dr. Jaume Lopez, examines the possibility of strengthening democracy and its three main constituents: representation, participation and direct democracy, though mainly focusing on advancements in the latter. The aim of this study is, therefore, to offer tools with which direct democracy can be improved. Special emphasis is put on the case of Catalonia. The study also gives insights from different contexts in which direct democratic elements are currently applied, ranging from the case of Switzerland to that of the United States of America. By focusing not only on improvements i...
