AbstractThe relationship between heterogeneity and democracy is complex and manifoldly interwoven. The increasing heterogenisation of democratic societies seems to be the most apparent internal challenge to modern democracies, manifesting at least in two dimensions: culturally as ethnic and religious heterogenisation and structurally as socioeconomic and social heterogenisation. Following this distinction, democratic societies today are particularly facing identity-based and interest-based differences that often result in conflicts about recognition and resources. In this article these challenges are explicated in detail demonstrating the variety of the described problems. Furthermore, it discusses possibilities of democratic governance under conditions of growing heterogeneity. Although a variety of different institutional solutions can be identified, there is no perfect way of handling the identified problems.
