The Constructivist Turn in Political Representation

First Edition

Edited by Lisa Disch, Mathijs van de Sande, and Nadia Urbinati

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Offers comparative accounts of the genealogy of the constructivist turn in the rival intellectual traditions of continental democratic theory and Anglo-American deliberative democracy
  • Features the first English translation of Claude Lefort's essay 'Democracy and Representation'
  • Critically examines the political implications of constructivist research for legitimating potentially undemocratic aspects of global politics
  • Re-examines democratic uprisings that have been dismissed as 'protest movements' from the constructivist position
