Begrænsning af demokratisk deltagelse: En afprøvning af argumenter imod folkeafstemninger.

Rasmus Emil Gundel

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project aims at understanding wether or not the decision, in many representative democracy, to keep the population away from any kind of direct political decision making, specifically referemdums, is based on rational and empirically founded argumentations. Through a critical rationalist analysis the project then examines ten arguments against the use of referendums, collectively presented by a report from the british house of lords. The project finds that none of the ten arguments are valid, in terms of being rational and consistently proven true by empirical data. The projects does however not conclude wether or not the decision to limit direct democracy is universally based on valid or invalid argumentations.
