Democracy beyond the State: Insights from the European Union
Achim Hurrelmann looks at lessons that could be drawn from the European Union about the democratization of other non-state entities. He argues that the EU’s non-state character is no insurmountable obstacle to democratization. The “democratic deﬁcit” of the European Union is rooted in the institutional design of its multilevel system and is further inﬂuenced by limited and uninformed citizen participation in EU politics.
