One of the European Union's integration goals is to create a common European public space. Today, the most effective public sphere is national public sphere. In the context of the European Union, have we moved from national public spaces to European public spaces? Can such a European public sphere be moved? Is this a realistic target?
In reading John B. Min's essay here (https://theloop.ecpr.eu/a-democratic-philosophy-for-democracys-data-mountain/) I began to wonder about "democratic progresses" as opposed to the now all too familiar "democratic backslidings".
For me, at the moment, "democratic progresses" looks like a combination of private citizens (inclusive of residents and visitors, especially migrants), civil society (or public sphere) organisations, and public things/officials/institutions working together to develop trustworthy patterns of behaviour given to enhancing the power of people - especially marginalised individuals and groups.
These sorts of progresses are people-driven and advices are provided to them by so-called "democracy experts" (broadly conceived).
One example is the rising interest and practice in "sortive", "aleatory", or "sortition democracy".
What do you think? What examples come to mind for you and why?
What do you mean by anthropology in public sphere? Kindly share your idea(s) about the role of anthropology in global peace and development.

How ‘anthropology’ as a discipline would be more visible in public sphere/domain? How can we successfully use basic principles of anthropology in promoting ‘global peace an harmony’?
We here at Loughborough University in the UK have a Research Group to investigate "The Arts in the Public Sphere", and we are holding a conference at our London campus on "Modern Mythologies" (September, 2019). There will be some of Barthes's ideas debated. If you all like we could develop our own conversation?
