AB  - The main focus of our paper is on a specific form of democratic discourse, used in different types of social engagement actions (petitions, speeches, intellectual engagement, ad hoc citizens' protests, social movements etc.), that attempts to politicize a certain issue by challenging the neoliberal principle of instrumentalism which argues that democratic procedures can legitimately be abandoned in the name of the greater efficiency of socioeconomic development. Therefore, we start from identifying the discourse of "neoliberal instrumentalism" and its relative success in delegitimizing the welfare state and mechanisms of democratic decision making and we formulate a conceptual model of a democratic counter-narrative named "anti-instrumentalist discourse". Through empirical analyses of discourse used by We Won't Let Belgrade D(r)own initiative, that mobilized against the Serbian government's urban project Belgrade Waterfront we try to illustrate the applicability and the heuristic value of the proposed model. The data for the analyses were collected through 1) desk analysis of available secondary data on the Belgrade Waterfront project, 2) official statements and proclamations of the We Won't Let Belgrade D(r)own initiative, 3) semi-structured interviews with four core members of the initiative.

AB  - This paper provides a comparative analysis of social movements’ characteristics and capacities to struggle against illiberal tendencies and incite political change in Serbia and North Macedonia. First, we discuss the illiberal elements of political regimes in the countries in question, Serbia and North Macedonia. Then, we provide a comprehensive overview of progressive social movements in the two countries, formed and organized as a response to different authoritarian and non-democratic tendencies. Finally, we point to some differences in their organizing, coalition-forging and issue-defining principles, which, we believe, may help to explain the relative success of social movements in North Macedonia in producing relevant political outcomes, compared to the weak political impact of social movements in Serbia. Empirical data were collected during the summer of 2018 through in-depth interviews with members of social movements in North Macedonia and Serbia.

suočavaju na početku svojih karijera, o usklađenosti njihovog

ova problematika, potpuno neopravdano, gubi na atraktivnosti u
javnim diskusijama, često čak i onima koje karakterišu feministički

domaćinstvu (i na faktore koji na nju utiču), kao i na zadovoljstvo
akademskih radnica takvom situacijom. Druga se odnosi na
usklađivanje poslovnih i porodičnih obaveza s fokusom pre
svega na ispitivanje postojanja odnosa međuzavisnosti između
raspodele poslova unutar domaćinstva i fluidnije organizacije
posla, koja je karakteristična i za akademsku profesiju. Iako
prevashodno eksplorativnog karaktera, s obzirom na to da je
primarni cilj prikupljanja podataka korišćenih u mojoj studiji bio

Formiranje aktivnog i tolerantnog građanstva. Potencijal i ograničenja deliberativnog modela demokratije

AB  - Iako su mišljenja podeljena o tome koliko danas možemo da pričamo o krizi demokratije ono oko čega postoji konsenzus jeste da sve manji broj građana aktivno učestvuje u javnom životu zajednice. Građani su sve manje informisani, sve manje zainteresovani za javna pitanja i demokratske institucije i – što ima značajne posledice za samu suštinu demokratije – sve manje se prepoznaju u političkim odlukama koje donose elite (Crouch 2004, Dalton 2004). Iz perspektive demokratske teorije jedini mogući odgovor na ovakvu situaciju demokratskog deficita bio bi osnaživanje građanske participacije. Ipak, iako se čini da je danas ideja o vrednosti i opravdanosti demokratske participacije postala neosporiva, ponovo se čuju zahtevi za ograničavanjem mogućnosti građana da učestvuju u donošenju političkih odluka, ali i u javnom životu uopšte .  
Polazeći iz perspektive deliberativnog modela demokratije, u ovom radu se tvrdi da je zahtev za redukovanjem prostora za građansku participaciju ne samo očigledno loš, zbog toga što dodatno urušava demokratiju ne dozvoljavajući da se napravi prostor za osnaživanje građanstva, već se zasniva i na teorijskim i empirijskim pretpostavkama koje nisu adekvatno postavljene. 
Pored toga, kroz problematizovanje koncepta idealnog građanina, ovaj rad pre svega ističe značaj aktivnosti i tolerantnosti kao karakteristika idealnog građanina koje su neophodne za ostvarenu demokratiju. Koristeći argumente deliberativnog pristupa demokratiji i uvide iz analiza deliberativnih arena, u radu se prvenstveno argumentuje kako je formiranje aktivnog i tolerantnog građanstva empirijski moguće, ali i kako ove dve karakteristike građanstva ne moraju biti u tenziji.

AB  - Cilj ove studije bio je da zahvati sve važne elemente
socijalne strukture, kulturno-vrednosnih i političkih
orijentacija građana i građanki. Istraživanje smo
započeli sa idejom da prikažemo portrete tipičnih (i
manje tipičnih) građana Srbije kako bi se poboljšalo
razumevanje političkih dešavanja u Srbiji i mogućeg
uticaja građana. Cilj je bio analiza važnosti
najvažnijih aspekata socijalnog zaleđa koji bi mogli
da potencijalno razlikuju, pa i razjedinjuju građane i
građanke u političkom smislu. Analizirani su, dalje,
politički stavovi i vrednosti (u najopštijem smislu)
kako sadržinski (šta je vrednost i koje vrednosti su
raširene), tako i u kontekstu socijalnog zaleđa, a sve
u odnosu na političko rezonovanje građana. Težilo se

on identity, the debate in literature remains highly theoretical in underlying the benefits of
deliberative model for EU Integration. So far, little empirical evidence is available on the
actual impact of deliberation. Can deliberation enhance European identity? We specifically
address this question by using deliberative polling quasi-experiment that involved random
sample of 348 European citizens in 2 days deliberation on issues of European concern. The
comparison of citizens’ sense of belonging to both EU and nation states before and after
deliberation, allowed us to explore the effects of deliberation on identity and further test it
against the control group. The analyses show that when European citizens are enabled to
deliberate on European issues beyond national borders their exclusive national identity
decreases and they become more community minded. The observed transformation of
identities is further analyzed in order to explore the relationship between European and
national identity. The analyses indicate that even after deliberative treatment in which
European identity has been activated the relationship between multiple identities remains
compatible.

AB  - This paper focuses on migration in Europe and European identity. Above all, it aims
to explore the capacity of European identity to offer an inclusive form of collective affiliation
both for intra- and extra-European migrants. We argue that the probability
for both, extra- and intra-EU migrants, to develop European identity is higher than
the probability to develop country-of-residence identity since the later one is based
on ascriptive criteria and therefore exclusive in its nature. Social scientists from different
traditions started only recently to deal with those questions focusing, above
all, on the effects of mobility within EU borders on identity and attitudes towards
Europe (Favel, 2009; Recchi and Favel, 2009). Our research aims to contribute to this
theoretical and empirical debate by analysing also extra-European migrants. The
high magnitude of extra-EU immigration (more than 30 million, out of the total 47
million of migrants that reside in EU countries were born outside the EU according to
Eurostat 2011) clearly shows the importance of the relationship between migrants
and European identity. In our empirical analyses we will rely on 2009 Eurobarometer
(EB) and 2009 European Election Survey (EES) data

We contrast deliberative persuasion to non-deliberative persuasion, whereby we explore whether the most frequently repeated position influences opinions. We find that with regard to regularization of irregular immigrants, deliberative persuasion took place. In the context of European involvement in immigration affairs, however, opinions are driven by the most frequently repeated position rather than by the quality of argumentation.

To illustrate our argument, we rely on an analysis of group discussions from EuroPolis, a transnational deliberative experiment that took place one week ahead of the 2009 European Parliamentary elections. The European deliberative poll is an ideal case for testing the viability of deliberative democracy across political cultures because it introduces variation in terms of constituency and group plurality under the controlled conditions of quasi-experimental scientific setting. For measuring group dynamics and interactions we apply a modified version of the Discourse Quality Index (DQI) that is combined with a qualitative content analysis of selected sequences of discussions. Findings show that participants of transnational deliberative polling 1) generally recognise the EU polity as a reference point for exercising communicative power and impact on decision-making, and 2) are in fact able to interact and debate across languages and cultures, developing a self-awareness of citizens of a shared polity and thereby turning a heterogeneous group of randomly selected citizens into a constituency of democracy.

The participatory models of democracy are based on the inclusion of many social actors, which can be considered not only as stakeholders but also as those who know well the social and economic context, in the formation of public policy. Participatory model, usually implemented at the local level, enable restoration of control over political decisions to the hands of the community and the formation of policies that will be able to protect and promote local economic and social interests and resources. At the same time, the literature points out that participation of the public in the formulation of public policy is one of the basic conditions of successfully planned and implemented policy. The use of participatory models of public lands management has proven to be very fruitful in many European countries which resulted in the implementation of different forms of participatory devices within the process of formation of the spatial and urban policy.The aim of this paper is to present both, the advantages and challenges of participatory models of democracy regarding the public land management. Theoretical model of participatory democracy applied to the public land management will be discussed in the first part of the paper.

Improving the Quality of Democracy: The case of Deliberative Poll held in 2007 in Turin

AB  - In our study, we will evaluate the case of Deliberative Polling that took
place in Turin in 2007 in order to understand, whether the Deliberative Poll
could satisfy the democratic criteria outlined in the volume’s framework.
Many empirical studies have explored the effects of deliberation using the
deliberative poll, confirming that participation in deliberation produces different
“democratic” effects: political sophistication, political interest, internal political
efficacy, political trust, political “respect”, political empathy, “sociotropism”
and more positive attitudes toward the political system (Luskin and
Fishkin, 2002, Fishkin 2009, Mansbridge, 2010). Although the main idea on
which deliberative experiments are based is that discussion and deliberation
have a positive effect both on the health of democracy and the citizens involved
in the deliberations, the main focus of empirical research remains primarily
concerned with understanding the effects of deliberation on citizens'
opinions about the issue at hand.
This chapter will follow the analytical framework outlined by the editors.
In order to explore the effects of deliberative poll on the quality of democracy,
it will cover all of the evaluation areas outlined by the framework except the
one on effectiveness. Additionally, using previous analyses of Deliberative Poll
outputs, this study will analyse the perceived legitimacy of the process through
different phases of DP. The results from previous DPs have already offered
some support for the idea that deliberation makes citizens more supportive of
the democratic system (Luskin and Fishkin, 2002). The novelty of our research
is the use of the indicator of citizens' assessment of how well democracy works
– an indicator already used in quality of democracy studies – and to assess how
it changes through different experimental phases of DP. In this way, we hope
to understand not only whether the citizens would become more supportive of
the political system, we also hope to learn which phase has the strongest effect
on this support. We expect that during the phase in which citizens interact withpoliticians they will develop a better understanding of the political process and
thus, increase their satisfaction with democracy.
First, we will briefly describe the Deliberative Polling experiment that took
place in Turin.

have a positive effect both on the health of democracy and the citizens involved
in the deliberations, the main focus of empirical research remains primarily
concerned with understanding the effects of deliberation on citizens'
opinions about the issue at hand.
This chapter will follow the analytical framework outlined by the editors.
In order to explore the effects of deliberative poll on the quality of democracy,
it will cover all of the evaluation areas outlined by the framework except the
one on effectiveness. Additionally, using previous analyses of Deliberative Poll
outputs, this study will analyse the perceived legitimacy of the process through
different phases of DP. The results from previous DPs have already offered
some support for the idea that deliberation makes citizens more supportive of
the democratic system (Luskin and Fishkin, 2002). The novelty of our research
is the use of the indicator of citizens' assessment of how well democracy works
– an indicator already used in quality of democracy studies – and to assess how
it changes through different experimental phases of DP. In this way, we hope
to understand not only whether the citizens would become more supportive of
the political system, we also hope to learn which phase has the strongest effect
on this support. We expect that during the phase in which citizens interact withpoliticians they will develop a better understanding of the political process and
thus, increase their satisfaction with democracy.
First, we will briefly describe the Deliberative Polling experiment that took
place in Turin.",

AB  - Beginning with the Trilateral Commission report in 1975, recent studies have
demonstrated increasing dissatisfaction with the performance of democracies across Europe
(Crozier, et al. 1975). Citizens have become increasingly mistrustful of politicians, skeptical
about institutions, and disenchanted with the effectiveness of the democratic process
(Dalton, 2004). Recent longitudinal studies, analyzing satisfaction with democracy of
European citizens showed that in many European countries satisfaction with national
democracies flourishes and increases in time (see Wagner et al. 2009, Bellucci et al. 2012). At
the same time, the scientific has been characterized by the development of different
theoretical perspectives that all utilize different approaches in order to define and explain
support for democracy. We will first attempt to understand what citizens effectively support
when they say that they support “democracy.”
In order to answer this question, we will briefly review the literature on popular support for
democracy and then empirically explore the main theoretical model adopted in support for
democracy studies in order to understand if it still explains today'ʹs empirical reality of
Europe. In the second section we will try to assess where each European country is placed on
key dimensions of support for democracy. In that way, we will be able to see where Austria
stands within the European family in terms of support for democracy. Our third section
explores the possibility of deliberative mini publics to improve popular support for
democracy. The data we will analyze are produced by a deliberative poll experiment,
EuroPolis, which took place in 2009 and involved random sample of European citizens. We
seek to understand not only whether the citizens could become more supportive of the
political system, after participating in deliberative process, as assumed by deliberative model
of democracy, we also aim to learn something about the differences between the Austrian
and European sample.

AB  - This chapter discusses three set of issues related to European identity. It first reviews the existing theoretical and empirical literature on European identity, organizing it around two major perspective, the neofunctionalist and the identitarian one. Second, it discusses the different ways European identity has been measured over time and it traces its evolution, based on different indicators, from the early 1970s up to 2007. The format of the question appears to be the most important element in explaining variation in levels of European identity, followed by the nation and, last, time. Third, the chapter assesses the relative weight the functional and identity models play in explaining variations in levels of European identity cross-nationally and over time. Using a pooled design, the results show that both functional and identity components are important in explaining variation in level of European identity over time and cross-nationally. As to identity, the quality of government index and the percentage of foreign workers are both significantly and negatively related to European identity. While all functional variables point in the right direction, length of duration of EU membership, a controversial and important indicator of the aggregate level of European identification, is found not significantly related with the aggregate level of European identity.

AB  - Financing of political parties as a relevant aspect of political corruption still
represents a relatively unexplored ground for political science.
Our study aims at addressing this phenomenon in the Balkan region by conducting
a comparative analysis including a wide sample of countries. More specifically, the
analysis traces developments of the all the candidate countries and potential candidate
countries of the Balkan area: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo,
Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro, and Serbia starting from year 2002, when the
Commission started to yearly report the progress of each country within the framework
of the Stabilization and Association Process (SAP).
We developed our research strategy as follows. Countries’ progress in adapting
national regulations on the financing of political parties represents our dependent
variable. The assessment of the quality of national regulations and the developments
overtime are based on the European Union (EU) country reports published yearly by
the European Commission. The tangible progress in the EU accession negotiations
constitutes our independent variable. To determine the proximity to the EU membership
we look at the state of the SAP negotiations and at one country’s status as candidate or
potential candidate (formal recognition, de facto recognition, absence of recognition).
The final discussion is based on a typology of the Balkan countries addressing
their degree of adaptation to the EU-sponsored legislation on financing of political
parties as reflected by their relative proximity to the EU membership.

AB  - In this paper, we confront some commonly held assumptions and objections
with regard to the feasibility of deliberation in a transnational and plurilingual
setting. To illustrate our argument, we rely on a solid set of both
quantitative and qualitative data from Europolis, a transnational deliberative
experiment that took place one week ahead of the 2009 European
Parliamentary elections. The European deliberative poll is an ideal case for
testing the viability of deliberative democracy across political cultures because
it introduces variation in terms of constituency and group plurality under the
controlled conditions of a scientific experiment. On the basis of our
measurement of both participants’ self-perceptions and changes of opinions
through questionnaires and of group dynamics and interactions through
qualitative coding of group discussions we can identify the following patterns:
1) The EU polity is generally recognised and taken as a reference point by
participants for exercising communicative power and impact on decisionmaking,
2) the Europolis experiment proves that participants are in fact able to
interact and debate across languages and cultures, developing a selfawareness
of citizens of a shared polity and thereby turning a heterogeneous
group of randomly selected group into a constituency of democracy.

La democrazia in un ambiente ostile: Un quasi esperimento deliberativo

AB  - In this article, we present the results of a deliberative polling experiment conducted in March 2007 with a sample of inhabitants of the province of Turin on two issues: the high-speed train connecting France to Italy (TAV) and the right to vote for legal non-EU immigrants in local elections. Following the standard design of deliberative poll, we report several aggregate and individual changes in attitudes. Changes in level of information and policy preferences were significant, but more limited than in comparable local deliberative polls. However, the experiment revealed another, different, set of changes in the normative and cognitive beliefs related to the legitimacy and technical merit of the arguments held by those whose ideas the respondents do not share. In particular, the views that were contrary to the prevalent climate of opinion were perceived, after the experiment, as more legitimate and more grounded in significant empirical or normative arguments than before. These results point to the importance of a deliberative environment that allows for a balanced and egalitarian discussion in which opposing arguments can be assessed and the implications of different alternatives explored in greater detail. Such an environment encourages dialogue between majority and minority over controversial issues and it fosters mutual respect among opposing parties and greater understanding of opposing views and arguments.
