Internet-mediated participation beyond the nation state

Bart Cammaerts

Published by Manchester University Press

Perspectives on Democratic Practice MUP

  • Brings together for the first time studies on democracy and international relations with new media Theorises the popular concept of multi-stakeholderism and embeds this notion in democratic and political theory Addresses the crisis of representative democracy by exploring attempts to include citizens and civil society in policy processes at an international level (EU and UN) Critically assesses the increased use of the internet to facilitate participatory experiments aimed at involving citizens and civil society actors
  • The first case concerns the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) organised by the ITU/UN and the second case, the Convention for the Future of Europe (EU) Adopts a theoretical framework combining Giddens' dialectic of control and Foucault's analytics of power, to analyse these two cases in-depth concerning their participatory aims, potentials and concretisation thereof
