Democratic Innovation: Deliberation, Representation and Association

Routledge/ECPR, 2000 - 242 páginas
This text looks at the political future of democracy, exploring the latest ideas aimed at renewing popular power. Featuring new writing by leading European, American and Australian democratic theorists, this book explores the importance of public deliberation in democracies, how effective representation for all might be achieved, and how associations outside government may be at the heart of democracy's future. The contributors examine issues such as how our political systems can be revitalized; how ordinary people can be empowered when issues are so complex; whether the interests of marginalized groups, or of the natural world, can be effectively represented; and the role which voluntary associations can play in democratic governance. Through clear and rigorous debate, they consider the new institutions and attitudes which will be needed if democracy is to rise to the many challenges confronting it. This volume offers searching and accessible critiques of the latest thinking on deliberative democracy.
