Revitalizing Democratic Participation: Engaging Citizens for Change

by Mary Pat MacKinnon

In Revitalizing Democratic Participation: Engaging Citizens for Change, Mary Pat MacKinnon maintains that globalization and its attendant complexities could take us in one of two directions – towards greater engagement through deliberative forms of democracy and effective global governance, or, towards superpower dominance, weakened global governance and greater disparity at home and abroad. Movement towards the first, and preferred, option demands that we attend to the health of our own democracy.
