    The Effects of Deliberation on Citizen Knowledge, Attitudes and Preferences: A Case Study of a Belgrade Deliberative Mini Public.Ana Djordjevic & Jelena Vasiljevic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):72-97.
    Participation in deliberative arenas is often lauded for its transformative impact on citizens? attitudes, sense of agency and ability to formulate concrete policy proposals. The focus of this paper is the first ever deliberative mini public in Belgrade, centred on the topic of expanding the pedestrian zone and rerouting traffic in the city core. By relying on a set of qualitative and quantitative data collected before and after the deliberation, we aim to explore the effects of the public deliberation on (...)

    Promises and Challenges of Deliberative and Participatory Innovations in Hybride Regimes: The Case of Two Citizens’ Assemblies in Serbia.Irena Fiket & Biljana Djordjevic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):3-25.
    A worrying trend of autocratization that has been spreading globally in recent years, has thrust forward a new wave of appeals for deliberative and participatory democracy as a remedy for the crisis. With a few exceptions, the majority of participatory and deliberative institutions were implemented in stable democracies. The efforts to institutionalize participatory and deliberative models are almost completely absent in Serbia and other Western Balkan countries. Yet, there has been a trend of citizen mobilization in the form of social (...)

    Failed Expectations: Can Deliberative Innovations Produce Democratic Effects in Hybrid Regimes?Irena Fiket, Vujo Ilic & Gazela Pudar-Drasko - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):50-71.
    Participation in deliberation in stable democracies produces effects which are beneficial for democracy, while the results of deliberative innovations in non-democracies are more ambiguous. This article contributes to the debate about the effects of participatory democratic innovations on attitudes, related to democratic commitments, political capacities and political participation, in the increasingly ubiquitous hybrid regimes. We present the evidence collected from the participants before and after deliberative mini publics, held in Serbia in 2020. Serbia is an exemplary case of a recent (...)

    “Keep Up the Good Work, Za Nas Kej!” Citizens’ Passive Support to the Local Activist Group.Sanja Iguman, Nevena Mijatovic & Sara Nikolic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):120-142.
    Deep-rooted political turbulence, along with the present hybrid regime, have resulted in an undesirable social, economic and political milieu in Serbia. Such an atmosphere is a fertile ground for a grey economy, corruption, nepotism and restrictions to media freedoms. These?unconventional? means of social functioning, have caused a decline in trust towards state institutions and proportionally, increase of citizen participation in non-institutional models of engagement. The aim of this paper is to analyse one such model of non-institutional engagement: the local activist (...)

    Deliberative Democracy - Theory and Practice: The Case of the Belgrade Citizens’ Assembly.Ivana Jankovic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):26-49.
    In this paper, we examine whether it is possible to improve democracy by encouraging ordinary citizens to participate in political decision-making and if participation in deliberative institutions can make citizens more competent decision-makers. By using qualitative data, we analyze the discussion from the Belgrade citizens? assembly focused on the topic of expanding the pedestrian zone in the city center. The CA was organized in Serbia for the first time, as part of a research project aimed at promoting and advancing innovative (...)

    The Revolution That Ate its Own Children: The Colourful Revolution From Consensus to Discord.Nenad Markovikj & Ivan Damjanovski - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):162-186.
    The main goal of this essay is to provide an in-depth analysis of the trajectory of the Colourful Revolution in North Macedonia as a social movement. From a more general perspective, the paper engages with the growing interest in the literature that explores the correlation between social movements and democratisation processes, especially in societies that fall into the category of hybrid regimes. The Colourful Revolution is a good example of a protest movement that has created effective regime change. It presented (...)

    Animal Dignity and Sympathetic Imagination: Martha Nussbaum and an Analysis of the Treatment of Non-Human Animals.Iva Martinic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):218-232.
    In this paper, I analyse Martha Nussbaum?s view of how we should treat non-human animals, which she links to her capabilities approach. This approach offers a conception of justice or, as Nussbaum puts it, a collection of fundamental rights that specify some of the necessary elements for a just society. In addition to justice for human beings, this approach includes animal rights. The basis for the discussion consists of two elements that justify the claim that every animal deserves to live (...)

    The Relevance of Philosophy in Times of the Coronavirus Crisis.Jelena Pavlicic, Marija Petrovic & Milica Smajevic-Roljic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):233-246.
    The current coronavirus pandemic has presented many scientific disciplines, including philosophy, with various theoretical and practical challenges. In this paper, we deal with three philosophical issues related to the pandemic and specific approaches to them. The first part of the article is dedicated to the analysis of the term?expert,? whose significance was highlighted at the outbreak of the pandemic. By examining Plato?s ancient and Goldman?s modern understanding of this concept, we will try to emphasize the importance of expert opinion in (...)

    Nature and Food Commodification. Food Sovereignty: Rethinking the Relation Between Human and Nature.Federica Porcheddu - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):189-217.
    The article aims to explore the link between commodification of nature and commodification of food. The latter is in fact one of the most negative and controversial aspects of nature commodification. The examination of food commodification represents fertile ground for investigating the relationship between humans and nature. In this context, food sovereignty provides a useful paradigm that not only serves as an alternative to the current food regime, but also allows for the experiencing a different kind of relationship between humans (...)

    The Social Movement for Truth and Justice - Pragmatic Alliance-Building with Political Parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina.Valida Repovac-Niksic, Jasmin Hasanovic, Emina Adilovic & Damir Kapidzic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):143-161.
    Protests among citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina are becoming more frequent. Most often, their aim is to decry the dysfunctionality and opacity of the government, which are the result of the ethno-political structure created by the Dayton Agreement, but also a trend towards democratic regression and autocracy. A number of authors have tackled the?JMBG? protests of 2013 and the Plenums that emerged from the February 2014 protests, from their particular disciplines. The focus of this paper is the social movement?Justice for (...)

  12. Cicero and Hobbes on the Person of the State.Marko Simendic - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):247-262.
    The importance of Thomas Hobbes?s account of personation and representation can hardly be overstated. And his intellectual debt to one of his classical foes, Marcus Tullius Cicero, can hardly be ignored. This paper compares Hobbes?s ideas on personhood of the state with Cicero?s notion of persona civitatis, and attempts to describe how Hobbes reshaped Cicero?s guidelines for presenting legitimate authority into a prop for defending any effective authority. Hobbes absorbs Cicero?s influential argument and builds on the idea of civic representation (...)

    From Deliberation to Participation: Democratic Commitments and the Paradox of Voting.Andrija Soc - 2022 - Filozofija I Društvo 33 (1):98-119.
    In this paper, I examine the view that, surprisingly, the more citizens deliberate about politics, the less likely they are to participate in the realm of the political, and vice versa. In the first part of the paper, I approach the problem from the perspective of the paradox of voting, the claim that voting itself is instrumentally irrational because of the very low probability that a single vote will make any difference at the elections. In the second part of the (...)
