Using contemporary tendencies towards depoliticization of public issues and popular interests as a starting point, Rethinking Popular Representation makes a case for rethinking more democratic popular representation. It argues that the root cause of this depoliticization is flawed representation, due to both elitist institution-building and fragmented citizen participation. It outlines a framework for popular representation, examines key issues and experiences, and provides a policy-oriented conclusion.
