Abstract

This Panel will discuss the ‘militant democracy’ paradigm and its alternatives. It invites theorists to critically reflect on historical and contemporary responses to extremist politics and antidemocratic ideologies. Such responses may include party bans, hate speech prosecution, increased security measures, international sanctions, systematic political isolation, preventive social inclusion, civic education programs and so on. The aim is to bring specifically into focus the ethical and normative implications of various types of democratic self-defense: how do they affect our conceptions of democracy, legitimacy, liberty and human rights?
