Participatory Innovation and Representative Democracy in Latin America

Participatory Innovation and Representative Democracy in Latin America

Johns Hopkins University Press, September 2009. Trade Paperback. Used - Good. Item #204435
ISBN: 0801894077

This empirically grounded collection examines the growth of participatory institutions in Latin American democracy and how such institutions affect representative government. While most existing literature concentrates on model cases of participatory budgeting in Brazil, this volume investigates cases in Mexico, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, and Argentina, where conditions for innovation have been far less favorable. The contributors, while recognizing the important differences and potential clashes between participatory and representative forms of democracy, ultimately favor participation, emphasizing its capacity to enhance and strengthen representative democracy.
