It makes them doubt the ability not just of the European Union but also national governments and the democratic system in general, to meet their needs and serve their interests.

Such challenges are evidence that democracy requires constant investment.Alliance issue: Philanthropy's Developers; June 2018, Volume 23, Number 2.
