Crises, and even more so their aftermath, are transformative experiences for democracies and their citizens. In times of crisis, we see efforts aimed at protecting the status quo that is challenged by the crisis; we also see attempts aimed at transforming institutions, processes, behaviours and narratives in order to address the causes that led to the crisis, address their consequences or create new, more adaptable or resilient conditions. Existing power structures and relations may be further consolidated through these processes or they may be fundamentally altered.
