11.30 | Theme: (European) Elections – Lotteries and democracy - Brett Hennig Lotteries are being used in politics all across Europe, and could be one answer to the ongoing rise of populism and general political disaffection. Looking at the results of the May EU elections, Hennig will analyse the state of European populism and electoral politics, and show how and where lotteries (or sortition) have been used in politics to engage "everyday people" in deliberative citizens' assemblies. Such forums might be used to diffuse the nationalist shift in politics by integrating the language of populism into new forms of democracy at local, national and EU level.
