Democracy in Question is a podcast from the Central European University – each episode features a leading scholar or public figure to explore the challenges and dilemmas facing democracies around the world, in conversation with renowned social anthropologist and CEU President and Rector Shalini Randeria. The central theme is investigating what needs to be done to ensure the future well-being of our democratic institutions and practices.

The episode, “Martin Krygier on Anti-Constitutional Populism”, published 3 May 2023, features one of the leaders of our research project, Martin Krygier. The conversation explores how populists effectively use constitutions to undermine and abolish constitutionalism. What legalistic tactics are often hiding behind culturalist arguments to subvert the rule of law? And how can law be better used in the service of liberal democracy?
