Participatory Democracy in Southern Europe. Causes, Characteristics and Consequences (2014)

participación, democracia, Europa del sur

Authors analyze a wide range of innovative “participatory interventions that have been created or legitimized by central governments, providing original exploration of institutional democratic participatory mechanisms” across Spain, Italy and France. As editors assert, “citizen participation is a central component of democratic governance. As participatory schemes have grown in number and gained in social legitimacy over recent years, the research community has analyzed the virtues of participatory policies from several points of view, but usually giving focus to the most successful and well-known grass-roots cases”. Nevertheless, this book examines specifically the participatory experiences promoted by institutions, using “quantitative and qualitative methods to compare why these cases of participatory mechanisms have emerged, how they function, and what cultural impact they’ve achieved. This allows highly original insights into why participatory mechanisms work in some places, but not others, and the sorts of choices that organizers of participatory processes have to consider when creating such policies”.
