COMPROMISE - Democratic Ideals and Real Politics
COMPROMISE is a research project that investigates the meaning, use and value of compromises in political theory and real politics. Considering political compromises inherently valuable in democratic decision-making, the ambition of this project is to provide a framework for a deeper understanding and evaluation of political compromise-formation. Beginning from the fact of disagreement and the need for principles for compromise-formation, the project contributes to contemporary debates in the international literature on how to do normative political theory that takes political realities seriously. Hence, the overall aim of the project is to gain a better understanding of the interplay of the formulation and promotion of ideals, on the one hand, and a political reality characterized by disagreement and the need for compromise, on the other hand.
