Comparative Lessons for Participatory Democracy Theory
Chapter 8 places the conclusions in a comparative perspective, highlighting the theoretical and policy lessons that can be learned from the five empirical cases presented in the book. It then explores the differentiated consequences each type has for the deepening of local democratic practices in governance processes, highlighting the limits and potential of each model as well as discussing the implications for the quality of democracy and its procedures, processes, and policy outcomes. The chapter discusses the theoretical implications of the findings for the study of institutional reform, civic engagement, and democratization, and also the policy implications for the policy makers and politicians who lead such types of participatory democracy reforms throughout Latin America, as well as in municipalities around the world.
