In the online article, Lena Frischlich describes the different concepts of resilience in psychology:
“Psychology differentiates between resilience as a result and resilience as a process (Miller-Graff, 2020). The process perspective not only focuses at the observable result such as whether it is possible to return to a state of well-being after a strain, but also at the mix of obstacles and resources in coping (Hamby et al., 2018).”
She then moves to what it means for a democracy to be resilient and what challenges emerge from a digital society. One thing that becomes clear: democratic resilience from a result- and process-oriented perspective neither aims to prevent anti-democratic communication nor does it accept every content framed as opinion. Rather, it assesses measures on whether they stay committed to deliberative ideals in the course of democratic discourses.
The inter-university institution “Wissenschaft und Kunst” (W&K; science & art) is a collaboration between the Paris-Lodron university and the Mozarteum University Salzburg. To objective is to mediate between science and art through scientific projects, events as well as a comprehensive curriculum.
