Abstract

During the 13th Legislature of the Italian Republic the phenomenon of parliamentary mobility, that is of the passage of MPs and Senators from one political group to another, assumed significant dimensions in terms both of the number of representatives involved, and in terms of quality, in view of the creation of governments through the decisive contribution of deserter MPs, sometimes joined together in specially created groups. The aim of the work is to review the principles of political representation, retracing their genesis and their translation in the constitutional and legislative arena and in parliamentary regulations, testing the viability of the traditional reconstructions of the national representation of the parliamentarian.

Abstract

This volume represents the natural development of the theoretical conclusions which the author arrived at in a previous publication, devoted to the passage from the mandate prohibition to the party mandate. The analysis of the provisions present in the Spanish system as regards parties and Parliamentary groups, and in particular those aimed at countering the phenomenon of Parliamentary transfuguismo or switching, effectively confirms that it is possible to draw from the traditional principles on political representation meanings that better fit the peculiar role that the parties play within the current representative democracies, without undermining their foundations. Hence the necessity to define solutions of various kinds - constitutional, legislative, regulatory, conventional - designed to guarantee that the elected member respects the party mandate received from the voters.

Abstract

"The UK’s Changing Democracy presents a uniquely democratic perspective on all aspects of UK politics, at the centre in Westminster and Whitehall, and in all the devolved nations. The 2016 referendum vote to leave the EU marked a turning point in the UK’s political system. In the previous two decades, the country had undergone a series of democratic reforms, during which it seemed to evolve into a more typical European liberal democracy. The establishment of a Supreme Court, adoption of the Human Rights Act, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish devolution, proportional electoral systems, executive mayors and the growth in multi-party competition all marked profound changes to the British political tradition. Brexit may now bring some of these developments to a juddering halt. The UK’s previous ‘exceptionalism’ from European patterns looks certain to continue indefinitely. ‘Taking back control’ of regulations, trade, immigration and much more is the biggest change in UK governance for half a century. It has already produced enduring crises for the party system, Parliament and the core executive, with uniquely contested governance over critical issues, and a rapidly changing political landscape. Other recent trends are no less fast-moving, such as the revival of two-party dominance in England, the re-creation of some mass membership parties and the disruptive challenges of social media. In this context, an in-depth assessment of the quality of the UK’s democracy is essential. Each of the 2018 Democratic Audit’s 37 short chapters starts with clear criteria for what democracy requires in that part of the nation’s political life and outlines key recent developments before a SWOT analysis (of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) crystallises the current situation. A small number of core issues are then explored in more depth. Set against the global rise of debased semi-democracies, the book’s approach returns our focus firmly to the big issues around the quality and sustainability of the UK’s liberal democracy."

Abstract

Was ist die Mitte der Gesellschaft und was erwartet sie von der Zukunft? Wie bewertet sie Politik im Allgemeinen sowie Politiker, politische Prozesse und Entscheidungen im Besonderen? Anhand welcher Maßstäbe fällt sie ihre Urteile? Auf Basis einer umfangreichen qualitativen Erhebung wird die soziale Mitte in dieser Studie erstmals systematisch analysiert. Stine Marg erörtert nicht nur die Fokusgruppe als Methode der Sozialwissenschaft, sondern präsentiert ebenso überraschende Erkenntnisse über die Wertvorstellungen und Erwartungen "der Mitte".

Abstract

How do young people from immigrant families become engaged in politics? Anja Schmidt-Kleinert examines the case of young Israelis who are actively engaged with the nationalist Yisra'el Beitenu party, led by the Israeli minister of defence, Avigdor Lieberman. She explores how the activists present Israeli citizenship in a way that is exclusionary to non-Jewish citizens and analyses their strategy to actively construct a sense of belonging to Israeli society or, more precisely, to the Jewish collective by (re-)producing the ethno-nationalist discourse.

Abstract

Der "Wutbürger", 2010 zum Wort des Jahres gekürt, hat die Krise demokratischer Repräsentation in Deutschland auf einen Begriff gebracht: Immer mehr Bürger äußern Misstrauen gegenüber der etablierten Politik. Bei einer Betrachtung dieser Krise und ihrer Ursachen sind die Vorstellungen der Bürger von einer guten und gerechten Organisation von Politik, Wirtschaft und Staat zentral. Die Studie beschäftigt sich mit den Protagonisten der neuen Bürgerproteste - jenen Akteuren also, die ihren Glauben an die Funktionsfähigkeit unserer Demokratie eingebüßt haben: Wer sind sie, was fordern sie und welche Demokratie schwebt ihnen vor?

Abstract

Sowohl der "Arabische Frühling" als auch das Erstarken der dschihadistischen Kampfgruppe "Islamischer Staat" haben die diversen islamistischen Bewegungen in den Fokus der medialen und publizistischen Aufmerksamkeit rücken lassen. Auf der Basis der Gesellschaftstheorie der Politik Niklas Luhmanns untersucht Thorsten Hasche mit der AKP, der al-Qaida und der Muslimbruderschaft drei zentrale Bewegungen des sunnitischen Islamismus. Historisch und vergleichend nimmt er dabei ihre Vordenker, ihre politischen Ideologien und ihre Strukturen in den Blick. Es wird deutlich: Der sunnitische politische Islam wird auch mittelfristig ein wirkmächtiger Bestandteil des weltpolitischen Systems bleiben.

Abstract

Die Schweizerische Volkspartei ist binnen 25 Jahren von einer braven Klientelpartei zum politischen Taktgeber avanciert. Sie ist nicht nur die stärkste politische Kraft des Landes, sondern auch ein Vorbild des europäischen Rechtspopulismus. Marius Hildebrand beleuchtet die Karriere der SVP mithilfe der formalen Populismustheorie Ernesto Laclaus. Im Unterschied zu sozialstrukturellen und ideologiekritischen Analysen, die den Populismus als Anomalie perspektivieren, wird er hier als Effekt einer diskursiven Transformation der politischen Schweiz betrachtet.
