Professor Landemore's research interests include democratic theory, theories of justice, the philosophy of social sciences, and the history of thought. Professor Landemore is currently working on a new project on democratic innovations in post-representative democracy. She has just published an article on the inclusive and partly crowdsourced constitution-making process in Iceland and she is involved in the design and study of a crowdsourced legislative process in Finland. She also is researching the question of democracy in the workplace. We talk with Professor Landemore about re-thinking democracy in the 21st Century.
