Leaving the question of whether these processes should at all take place in democratic systems behind, we start from the facts (i) that these processes are part of the repertoire of democratic processes of existing democratic systems and (ii) that they are implemented through a variety of institutional designs, which empirical research has shown influence the kind of impact these processes have on democratic systems. This new starting point raises a range of largely unexplored normative questions: in order to best contribute to democratic systems, should referendums and initiatives be triggered by elected representatives or by nonelected actors? What kind of issues should be voted on? How many options should voters have on their ballots? Should the result of the vote be consultative or binding?</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-03-01T12:31:31Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Cheneval, Francis</dc:contributor> <bibo:issn>1424-7755</bibo:issn> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>el-Wakil, Alice</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2018</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Do Referendums Enhance or Threaten Democracy?</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-03-01T12:31:31Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
