Reforming democracies : six facts about politics that demand a new agenda by Douglas A Chalmers( Book )

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

2 editions published in 2000 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. La cuestion por resolver es la forma en que estas organizaciones y sus redes resultantes se incorporan en el proceso politico, en el 'Estado'. La geografia de la representacion politica y de la accion publica se ha modificado. La

The New Politics of Inequality in Latin America Rethinking Participation and Representation. Oxford Studies in Democratization( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Against a broader backdrop of globalization and worldwide moves toward political democracy, The New Politics of Inequality in Latin America examines the unfolding relationships among social change, equity, and the democratic representation of the poor in Latin America. Recent Latin American governments have turned away from redistributive policies; at the same time, popular political and social organizations have been generally weakened, inequality has increased, and the gap between rich and poor has grown. Hanging in the balance is the consolidation and the quality of new or would-be democracies; this volume suggests that governments must find not just short-term programmes to alleviate poverty, but long-term means to ensure the effective integration of the poor into political life. The New Politics of Inequality in Latin America bridges the intellectual chasm between, on the one hand, studies of grassroots politics, and on the other, explorations of elite politics and formal institution-building. It will be of interest to students and scholars of contemporary Latin American politics and society and, more generally, in the vicissitudes of democracy and citizenship in the late twentieth-century global system
