2010 (English)In: Rethinking Popular Representation / [ed] O.Törnqvist, K. Strokke, N. Webster, New york and Basingtoke: Palgrave Macmillian , 2010Chapter in book (Refereed)
Rethinking Popular Representation starts out from the deep concern with contemporary tendencies towards depoliticisation of public issues and popular interests. It is argued that the root cause of this is flawed representation, due to both elitist institution building and fragmented citizen participation. Hence the book makes a case for the need to rethink more democratic popular representation. Towards this end the book outlines an overarching analytical framework for popular representation, examines key theoretical issues and empirical experiences of popular representation and provides a policy-oriented conclusion.
