Democracy - What Does It Mean, and Is It a Good Idea? View details

'Undemocratic' is used to criticise decisions or how decisions have been made, but we don't often get beyond the criticism. This course is an opportunity to consider the different meanings of democracy - majority votes; meeting the needs and interests of the population; ensuring a positive outcome for the common good; holding those in power to account - and reasons which make democratic decisions legitimate or not. The course uses theories of democracy from Philosophy and Political Science and is not intended as a political platform. It will cover 1. the claims about legitimacy underlying judgments that a decision is 'undemocratic'; 2. the relationship between majority voting and legitimacy; 3.'stakeholder' democracy and interests; 4. meaningful and less meaningful participation; 5. genuine and 'manufactured' consensus; 6. the role of expertise in democracies.
