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. BCMD's four core programme areas are: 1. Developing media and democratic literacy 2. Encouraging public discourse 3. Strengthening "Media as the Fourth Estate" 4. Resource production

Chantal Mouffe examines the reasons for the post-political situation which has become dominant in recent years in European countries. It is due, she argues, to the move towards the center of social democratic parties that have accepted the idea that there was no alternative to neoliberal globalization. This has led to a consensus between center-right and center-left parties that far from being a step forward for democracy has created a favorable terrain for the rise of right-wing populist parties. She asserts that the only way to counter this phenomenon is through the development of left-wing populist movements. Chantal Mouffe is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster. Her books include The Return of the Political; Hegemony and Socialist Strategy (with Ernesto Laclau); The Dimensions of Radical Democracy; Gramsci and Marxist Theory; Deconstruction and Pragmatism; The Democratic Paradox; and The Challenge of Carl Schmitt, all from Verso. Moderated by Sofia Perez, Associate Professor of Political Science at Boston University. Prof. Perez's work has centered on the politics of economic regulation in Europe. She teaches comparative politics and courses on the politics of immigration. This event takes place as part of a new initiative entitled "Interferences," a series of events on issues pertinent to democratic politics in the US and Europe. Organized as part of EU Futures, a series of conversations exploring the emerging future in Europe. The EU Futures project is supported by a Getting to Know Europe Grant from the European Commission Delegation in Washington, DC.

This video was produced by the Council of Europe's Centre of Expertise for Local Government Reform as part of its programme to strengthen local and regional government capacity in Ukraine, and was funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency - Sida. Its aim is to raise awareness of the importance of strong local government for enhancing the quality of local life. As the level of government closest to local communities, local government is often better placed for responding to local needs. They have a better knowledge of the local environment, the local people, their culture and traditions, as well as of any special geographical advantages or difficulties to be accounted for. Public services and administration organised at this level are often better adapted to the local context. The Centre of Expertise for Local Government is a body of the Council of Europe which supports member States in the delivery of good democratic local government. It was set up following a decision of the Heads of State and Government of the Council of Europe when they met for a third summit in Warsaw in May 2005. Through this initiative, Council of Europe member States recognise the on-going importance of decentralisation and the essential role of effective local authorities in a sound democracy. The Centre responds to the challenge of building up the capacities of local authorities -- and their Associations -- to be able to provide good leadership and deliver local services to European standards.

In this year’s Patočka Memorial Lecture, political theorist Chantal Mouffe examines the crucial role played in politics by what she calls ‘passions’ to refer to the common affects that are at stake in the construction of collective identities. Taking her bearings from Spinoza, Freud and Wittgenstein and from the agonistic model of democracy that she had elaborated in several of her writings she will scrutinize the nature of our current ‘post-democratic’ condition and enquire about the affects that need to be mobilized in order to create a collective will able to give a new vigour to the democratic ideals. Chantal Mouffe is Professor of Political Theory at the University of Westminster in London, where she is also the module leader of the Centre for the Study of Democracy (CSD) MA modules The State, Politics and Violence and Current Issues in Democratic Theory. Chantal Mouffe has taught at many universities in Europe, North America and Latin America, and has held research positions at Harvard, Cornell, the University of California, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris. Between 1989 and 1995 she was Directrice de Programme at the College International de Philosophie in Paris. From May to July 2017 she will be a Albert O. Hirschman Visiting Fellow at the IWM.

Watch the full episode here: http://bit.ly/1uQ4w5B With the British media going into a frenzy over the current protests in Hong Kong, they seem to have forgotten that the UK never instituted anything close to democracy in the colony either. And could Washington be hijacking legitimate demands in Hong Kong? Through a fund called the National Endowment for Democracy, over half a million dollars has been funnelled into organisations such as the ‘American Centre for International Labour Solidarity’, and the ‘National Democratic Institute for International Affairs’. And the NED is paid off by companies such as Exxon, Goldman Sachs, McDonalds, and Boeing.

The rise of the Internet means that for the first time in centuries, Parliaments are not the only way of putting the people in charge. Political disaffection is growing and new and exciting alternatives are possible. It’s time for digital democracy.  Carl Miller co-founded, and is the Research Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at Demos, the first UK think tank institute dedicated to studying the digital world. He is the author of over a dozen major reports on the effect of the digital world on society and politics, and how it can be studied. This includes the influence of the Internet on radicalisation, policing and counter-terrorism, hate crime and social media, digital situational awareness, digital democracy, and changing identities and beliefs in the digital world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
