Citizens education, a path towards participative democracy

6th june 2008
25th september 2008

Abstract

The majority of current countries state nowadays that they are democrats, although most of the times, citizens’ participation is limited to voting for their representatives in periodic elections without wielding any control on them afterwards. The purpose of this article is to call the attention about the need to promote and to reinforce, through education given to voters, a higher degree of citizens’ intervention in public affairs. If this goal was achieved, the current delegative democracy with citizens-subjects would turn into a participative democracy with real citizens.
