Reputation-Based Democratic Participation

(p.160) 10 Reputation-Based Democratic Participation
Reputation-Based Governance
Stanford University Press

Reputation-based governance provides a more direct route for citizens to influence the choice of policies by directly ascribing to them a role in their selection. This chapter considers how forms of participative democracy can be established. It focuses on the procedural aspects of democratic practices: within a governance process, every chance of democratic participation rests on the presence of procedures of some type. These may be formally coded, as in the case of a referendum to abrogate a law, or they may be quite informal, as in a public demonstration attended by citizens who hope to put pressure on their government in favor or against some policy. Notwithstanding the obvious differences between these two cases, both can usefully be thought of as procedures. The chapter illustrates these issues by referring to a well-known case, namely the “participative budget” of the Brazilian city Porto Alegre.
