Good luckQuestion 1Drawing upon the texts we discussed in classes 2, 3, and 4 of the course (Popper, Constant, Berlin) explain in your own words what are “open societies” and how do they differ from “closed societies”. What are the main defining characteristics of open and closed societies? Do these characteristics remain the same or change over the course of history?Question 2In classes 5, 6, and 7 of the course, we discussed the institutional features of modern liberal democracies – the state, democracy, and the rule of law. (A) In your own words, define the main features of modern statehood, democracy, and the rule of law. (B) Choosing one state/country as an example, explain to what extent statehood, democracy, and the rule of law are functioning well or malfunctioning, and why.Question 3In classes 8, 9, 10, and 11 of the course, we examined a number of key challenges to contemporary open societies. Some of these – such as certain types of nationalism and populism – are challenges that we have experienced in the past, whereas others – such as existential risk from climate and emerging disruptive technologies or the effects of social media on democratic politics – are new. Focusing on two challenges of your choice, analyze the challenges and offer possible ways with which these challenges can best be managed or resolved.[END OF EXAMINATION TEXT]
