Democracy’s Mirror Images

In my first piece for the leading European political journal “E!Sharp”, I take on an observation I’ve long noticed about European and American societies:  that the American political system and the European workplace are designed to encourage democratic behavior, while the American workplace and European political systems are much less keen on democratic participation.

With current trends around social media accelerating citizen activism on both continents, however, the possibility of convergence makes the issue something worth noting.
