Loïc Blondiaux is a professor of political science at the Université Paris-1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and a researcher at the Centre européen de sociologie et de science politique (CESSP, EHESS-Paris-1-CNRS).
This book brings together contributions by twenty international specialists on this "deliberative shift" in democracy. They analyse various aspects of the concept, including its limits, retrace the many fieldwork studies it has led to, and discuss the contemporary debates on the deliberative ideal and the various forms of participative democracy.
de la démocratie
Loïc Blondiaux, Bernard Manin
The practices of representative democracy that are being developed around the world, in order to involve citizens in decision making, are privileged sites for the expression of emotions. This book demonstrates how emotions are highly standardised in these new spheres of democracy.
