Mending Democracy: A response to our readers

John Boswell, Selen A Ercan, Carolyn Hendriks

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The article argues that while the book brilliantly illustrates the many ways of democratic mending, there is an essential blind spot that runs through the entire book: economic inequality. Democratic processes seem strangely disconnected from the conditions under which people live. However, there can be no democratic equality and no just democracy as long as living conditions in society and among societies remain highly unequal. Accordingly, to unleash its potential the concept of mending should be enriched with an analysis and an understanding of the global political economy of inequality.
