We thank the members of our Admissions Committee for the Landecker Democracy Fellowship 2021/22. From August to September, 2021 members of the Admissions Committee read over 150 applications and interviewed more than 90 finalists.
Initially, Karolina's Action Project was supposed to focus on one aspect only - the urban chaos. As it turned out, it would also serve as a study of the ever-regressing public municipal sphere, lacking legal basis, and general helplessness regarding the relation of commoner-authority.
