Democracy, the Environment, and the Internet
MetadataShow full item record
Democratic theory and practice underwent something of a renaissance in the late twentieth century. The spread of liberal democratic political systems was accompanied by two other trends that have the potential to transform the shape of politics: the rise of environmental movements and increased public use of the Internet. These changes have generated two theoretical variations on the theme: ecological and digital democracy. This paper reviews these two schools of thought and considers the possibility of a synthesis between them.
