This meeting marked the first in the Society's modern history not linked to an annual conference of one of the three contributing disciplines--philosophy, political science, and law--and took place at the ASPLP's new institutional home, Boston University School of Law, on September 28, 2018. Our topic, 'Democratic Failure,' was selected by the Society's membership"--Page ix.

Abstract:

"[A] distinguished group of interdisciplinary scholars in political science, law, and philosophy ... explore the key questions and challenges facing democracies, both in the past and present, around the world. In ten timely essays, contributors examine the fascinating, centuries-old question of whether democracy can ever fulfill the promise of its ideals. Together, they explore lessons from the history of democracy, various failures of democratic representation, and more. Ultimately, this latest installment of the NOMOS series provides thought-provoking insights into how we conceptualize, measure, and address democratic erosion in our present-day world."--Back cover.
