GERMANY: Coronavirus, democracy and engagement politics

The Corona crisis poses a particular challenge to committed individuals and decision-makers. The German National Network for Civil Society (BBE) created a special page compiling contributions on the situation in democracy and engagement politics and provides an overview of the online resources of the federal states.

Solidarity at a distance, under the conditions of social distance, is a challenge that at the same time makes creativity in civic engagement observable in the diverse ways in which the crisis is being dealt with.

Within a few months, the spread of the respiratory disease COVID-19 caused far-reaching restrictions in public life worldwide. In March 2020, public life in Central Europe and Germany is largely paralysed. Against this background, the BBE collects contributions to democracy and engagement politics on this special page and provides an overview of the online offerings of the federal states.
