Abstract

In The Eyes of the People entwickelt der Politikwissenschaftler Jeffrey Edward Green unter der Bezeichnung "Okulare Demokratie" eine grundlegend neue Theorie demokratischer Teilhabe. Dabei wird der Blick der Bürger_innen als Instrument demokratischer Kontrolle hervorgehoben, in dessen Fokus nicht Inhalte, sondern die öffentliche Performance von Spitzenpolitiker_innen steht. Der Band stellt diese Demokratietheorie vor und macht den Ansatz sowie die Diskussion um ihn erstmals für den deutschen Diskurskontext zugänglich. Die Beiträger_innen greifen dabei die Debatte um die Krise der repräsentativen Demokratie auf und untersuchen die Potenziale einer plebiszitären Zuschauerdemokratie.

Abstract

'Global' is everywhere – recent years have seen a significant proliferation of the adjective 'global' across discourses. But what do social actors actually do when using this term? Written from within the political studies and international relations disciplines, and with a particular interest in the US, this book demonstrates that the widespread use of 'global' is more than a linguistic curiosity. It constitutes a distinct political phenomenon of major importance: the negotiation of and play with the notion of the 'new world'. As such, the analysis of the use of 'global' provides fascinating insights into an influential and politically loaded aspect of contemporary imaginations of the world.
