Prof. Dr. Martin Gross for BR2

"Mut zur Demokratie" / local elections in Bavaria


Prof. Dr. Martin Gross contributed the topic of "why citizens must participate more" in an interview for BR2. The main subject is the local elections in Bavaria.

The episode entitled " Mut zur Demokratie" (Courage for Democracy) deals, among other things, with the issue of voter turnout: "In the past, voter turnout has been rather low, in 2014 it was 55 percent. How do politicians manage to mobilize non-voters and do citizens as a whole have to have more say?"
