Nico Carpentier, the editor of the publication and author of several articles serving as its conceptual framework, defines Respublika! as a catalogue. This is an accurate description that corresponds both with its variety of formats and styles of narratives, and as an articulation of its parts, that creates fluidity but still allows readers to explore it partially or in aleatory order according to particular interests. The introduction presents the book as the fourth platform of the Respublika! project, whose combination of approaches ‘renders the catalogue a key resource about democracy, participation and the arts’ (p.7).
