DESIRE, the Centre for the study of Democracy, Signification and Resistance, performs critical academic research into the political-democratic nature of societal processes and their discursive-significatory dimensions. DESIRE brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium), Univerza v Ljubljani (Slovenia), and Uppsala Universitet (Sweden), and affiliate members from other institutions, to support their joint research activities.
