Not far from Athens: contradictions and problems of the democratic regime in antiquity

Place: Museum of Badalona

Pl. Assemblea de Catalunya, 1. Badalona 08911

The creation and establishment of the democratic regime in Athens on the 5th century BC revealed that, despite advancing towards a more participatory and even egalitarian political system, some basic problems linked to the manipulation of the masses or corruption were gaining a structural nature. In fact, the problems that the athenians discovered and the solutions that they raised are not so far away from what we nowadays live ... Nor Greeks nor Romans knew how to give a satisfactory answer to the problems of democracy.
