National sovereignty has changed the approach to citizenship and the relationship between democracy and citizens developed in the ancient city-states of Greece and in the Roman republic. The tension between universalism and particularism, increased by geo-political and cultural changes following 1989, is clearly expressed in political theory as well as in public discussions. This chapter follows both normativism and realism in their attempts to cope with the present contradictions of representative democracy, the growing disaffection and mistrust for institutions in democratic countries and the quest for a way to redemocratize democracy.

Abstract

National sovereignty has changed the approach to citizenship and the relationship between democracy and citizens developed in the ancient city-states of Greece and in the Roman republic. The tension between universalism and particularism, increased by geo-political and cultural changes following 1989, is clearly expressed in political theory as well as in public discussions. This chapter follows both normativism and realism in their attempts to cope with the present contradictions of representative democracy, the growing disaffection and mistrust for institutions in democratic countries and the quest for a way to redemocratize democracy.
