Gesellschaftliche Umbrüche, intensiver globaler Wettbewerb, Migrationsbewegungen, alternde Gesellschaften – diese Trends stellen europäische Wohlfahrtsstaaten auf die Probe. Sie müssen dringend umgestellt werden, um angemessen zu reagieren. Welche innovativen Governance-Ansätze gibt es, ihre Zukunftsfähigkeit sicherzustellen?

Dr. Ulrike GUEROT

Head of Department, European Policy and the Study of Democracy, Danube University Krems - University for Continuing Education; Director and Founder, European Democracy Lab, European School of Governance, Krems

 Since 2016 Ulrike Guérot is Professor at Danube-University Krems and head of the department for European Policy and the Study of Democracy. Core activities of the department are both interdisciplinary research and network building. The main goal is to initiate a citizen-oriented and sustainable debate on key issues surrounding today’s Europe. Since September 2017 Ulrike Guérot is holder of Alfred-Grosser visiting professorship at the Goethe-University Frankfurt. Furthermore, she founded the Berlin based think tank "European Democracy Lab. The lab seeks to rethink and redesign European democracy. Currently, the lab is building a campaign platform advocating for both the principle of political equality beyond nation states and the empowerment of regional stakeholders within the EU-setup.
 Prior to her work in Krems and Berlin, Ulrike Guérot built up the office and served as Director of the European Council on Foreign Relations and lectured at various internationally renowned universities, such as Bucerius Law School Hamburg, John Hopkins University, INSEAD Singapore and Europa University Viadrina in Frankfurt. In addition she conducted research at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB) on the topics of democracy and democratization. In April 2016 her first book 'Why Europe needs to become a republic! A political utopia' was published by Dietz. The principal idea of the book is the creation of a ‘European Republic’ based on the concept of equality in front of the law in a union of citizens. Her latest work 'The new civil war - the open Europe and its enemies', published by Ullstein is a bestseller in Germany. In this cutting edge pamphlet she describes the great divide throughout the European societies. She has been publishing widely in Germany, English and French on European, transatlantic and global issues in various newspapers, journals and books. In times of turmoil and crisis, Ulrike Guérot aims at creating a sustainable blueprint for Europe in the 21st century, which puts the citizen first.
