How can we create a vital and inclusive pluralistic democracy? In Public Deliberation, James Bohman offers answers to this question, showing how democratic theory and democratic practice can be remade to face new challenges. Arguing against the skepticism about democracy that flourishes today on both ends of the political spectrum, Bohman proposes a model of public deliberation that will allow expansions of democratic practice, even in the face of increasing pluralism, inequality, and social complexity
Deliberative democracy : essays on reason and politics by James Bohman( Book )

27 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anthology opens with four key essays - by Jon Elster, Jurgen Habermas, Joshua Cohen, and John Rawls - that helped establish the current inquiry into deliberative models of democracy. The nine essays that follow represent the latest efforts of leading democratic theorists to tackle various problems of deliberative democracy. All the contributions address tensions that arise between reason and politics in a democracy inspired by the ideal of achieving reasoned agreement among free and equal citizens. Although the authors approach the topic of deliberation from different perspectives, they all aim to provide a theoretical basis for a more robust democratic practice

Democracy across borders : from Dêmos to Dêmoi by James Bohman( Book )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today democracy is both exalted as the "best means to realize human rights" and seen as weakened because of globalization and delegation of authority beyond the nation-state. In this book, James Bohman argues that democracies face a period of renewal and transformation and that democracy itself needs redefinition according to a new transnational ideal. Democracy, he writes, should be rethought in the plural; it should no longer be understood as rule by the people (demos), singular, with a specific territorial identification and connotation, but as rule by peoples (demoi), across national boundaries. Bohman shows that this new conception of transnational democracy requires reexamination of such fundamental ideas as the people, the public, citizenship, human rights, and federalism, and he argues that it offers a feasible approach to realizing democracy in a globalized world."--Jacket

International regimes and democratic governance : political equality and influence in global institutions by James Bohman( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the limits imposed on democratic governments by the consequences of globalisation. The "global democracy deficit" is often mentioned with regard to the global economy and new regional forms of government. National economic policies are often ineffective when confronted with the effects of the interdependent financial markets. At the same time, transnational political communities such as the EU do not have the same democratic consent as nation-states. The author discusses the concept of "cosmopolitan democracy" as a solution to this question.--SCAD summary
