Es gibt kaum einen Begriff in den Politik- und Sozialwissenschaften, der so häufig benutzt wird wie der Begriff Krise. Krise des Sozialstaats, Krise der politischen Parteien, Krise des Parlaments, Eurokrise, Krise im Mittleren Osten, Krise der Diktaturen und schon immer auch: Krise der Demokratie. Steckt die Demokratie tatsächlich in der Krise, oder ist dieses verbreitete Urteil eine Erfindung von Theoretikern und Medien? Die Beiträge dieses Buchs untersuchen den gegenwärtigen Zustand der etablierten Demokratien auf der Grundlage eines gemeinsamen Demokratie- und Krisenverständnisses. Dem Leser wird aus drei theoretischen Perspektiven ein empirisch gehaltvoller Blick auf die zentralen Ebenen der Demokratie in der OECD-Welt geöffnet: der Partizipation, der Repräsentation und des Regierens. Die Krisenphänomene sind vielschichtig und variieren von Institution zu Institution, von Politikbereich zu Politikbereich und von Land zu Land. Von einer allgemeinen oder gar existenziellen Krise kann nicht die Rede sein. Dennoch gibt es keinen Grund zur Entwarnung. Die Legitimationsachsen der Demokratie verschieben sich. Die Demokratie steht vor großen Herausforderungen.

Examines why some democratic innovations succeed while others fail, using Venezuela, Ecuador, and Chile as case studies. Citizens’ Power in Latin America takes the reader into the heart of communities where average citizens are attempting to build a new democratic model to improve their socioeconomic conditions and to have a voice in decisions that affect their lives. Based on groundbreaking fieldwork conducted in Venezuela, Ecuador, and Chile, Pascal Lupien contrasts two models of participatory design that have emerged in Latin America and identifies the factors that enhance or diminish the capacity of these mechanisms to produce positive outcomes. He draws on lived experiences of citizen participants to reveal the potential and the dangers of participatory democracy. Why do some democratic innovations appear to succeed while others fail? To what extent do these institutions really empower citizens, and in what ways can they be used by governments to control participation? What lessons can be learned from these experiments? Given the growing dissatisfaction with existing democratic systems across the world, this book will be of interest to people seeking innovative ways of deepening democracy.

World Bank Discussion Paper No. 359. Oil and energy markets have experienced dramatic changes over the past two decades--steep price increases in the 1970s and 1980s followed by a decrease in 1986 and large declines in demand in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. But despite considerable uncertainty about future developments in the world oil market, this paper finds that demand is set to rise in all main regions, particularly in developing countries, led by increasing incomes, population, industrialization, investment, and trade. This study examines the growth in demand for eight major oil products for 37 developing countries over the 1971-93 period, analyzing the relationships and changes over time for income, population, and demand for energy and oil products for each country. It also examines some of the important phenomena that affect oil demand and calculates income and price elasticities for each product in all countries.

Die Policy-Analyse, die sich wesentlich mit Fragen der politischen Steuerung und der Gestaltung gesellschaftlichen Wandels befaßt, befindet sich im Wandel. Die Policy-Analyse,die ihre ursprüngliche Beeinflussung durch die Planungsdiskussion und den diesem zugrundeliegenden rationale und ökonomisch kalkulierenden Menschen nicht verleugnen kann, sieht sich in vielerlei Hinsicht gezwungen,ihre Konzepte skeptisch zu betrachten und eine Erklärungskraft ihrer Hypothesen in Frage zu stellen. Seit mehreren Jahren schon werden Versuche unternommen, Gegenentwürfe zum "Rationality Project" zu formulieren. Das hatte zur Folge, daß der "Textbook Approach" (Nakamura 1987) der Policy-Analyse aufgegeben wurde, der von einem klar abgegrenzten Programm, der "bounded policy", ausgeht. Um die Turbulenz der "Unordentlichkeit" der politischen Wirklichkeit besser zu berücksichtigen, wurde der neue politikwissenschaftliche Institutionalismus in die Netzwerkanalyse integriert. Der Band behandelt die Modifikation der Policy-Analyse und deren veränderte Fragestellungen.
