essays brings jointly a various diversity of best students to bare surprising
insights into how dilemmas of the recent public participation play out in politics
and businesses. via investigations together with fights over the
authenticity of business-sponsored public participation, the surge of the Tea
Party, the function of agencies in electoral campaigns, and participatory
budgeting practices in Brazil, Democratizing
seeks to refresh our figuring out of public participation and
trace the reshaping of authority in today’s political environment.
