Even well-established democracies need reform, and any successful effort to reform democracies must look beyond conventional institutions -- elections, political parties, special interests, legislatures and their relations with chief executives -- to do so. Expanding a traditional vision of the institutions of representative democracy, Douglas A. Chalmers examines six aspects of political practice relating to the people being represented, the structure of those who make law and policy, and the links between those structures and the people. Chalmers concludes with a discussion of where successful reform needs to take place: we must pay attention to a democratic ordering of the constant reconfiguration of decision making patterns; we must recognize the crucial role of information in deliberation; and we must incorporate noncitizens and foreigners into the political system, even when they are not the principal beneficiaries

Vinculos de la sociedad civil con la politica : las instituciones de segundo nivel by Douglas A Chalmers ( )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La razon de la creciente visibilidad de las ONG y las redes privadas no esta en las necesidades politicas situadas en consideraciones temporales, como el derrocamiento de regimenes autoritarios o el manejo de emergencias. Su presencia es el resultado de la difusion a largo plazo de las comunicaciones; del rapido incremento del numero de activistas, lideres y organizadores experimentados; de la globalizacion de las cuestiones relativas a politicas publicas; y de la complejidad de los problemas y los programas que la gente disena para resolverlos. No parece ser posible imaginar una reversion de estas tendencias; y si ellas son la fuente del crecimiento de las organizaciones de la sociedad civil, como creo, su presencia y aun su crecimiento sera permanente.
