Democratisch tekort door burgerfora verkleinen
How can we improve the relationship between citizens and decision makers? This question is in the Netherlands for over 15 years, a formal debate going. Various committees have examined reforms to strengthen the bond between citizens and their representatives, the Deetman commission in 1989 to the newly established National Convention. All the while, the issues remained largely unchanged: there is a clear preference for institutional solutions such as electoral reform and referenda.
