ZNWU Discussion Papers: New publication by Prof. Dr. Klüh

How can we toughen up the state against the backdrop of the transformative challenges of climate change, planetary boundaries, and technological progress? This discussion paper examines this question through a fundamental analysis of the dimensions of democratic politics and the “management” of public affairs.

Moreover this discussion paper argues that the state's ability to act is suffering from the withering away of the antagonistic dimension of democratic politics. At the same time, the state itself often puts on too tight a corset by narrowing its financial leeway and providing central public management organizations with a considerable degree of independence that was not secured by a similarly developed system of public accountability.
