Deliberative Democracy and the Law: Legal Interpretation in Pluralist and Deeply Divided Democratic Communities

Summary

Andreas's research explores the possibilities and challenges that theories of deliberative democracy present for legal interpretation in pluralist and deeply divided democratic communities. In particular, it examines what promise these theories hold for explaining the legitimacy of decisions made through the distinctive institutions of modern liberal democracies, as well as for resolving impasses of their function in practice. The areas to which this research aspires to make a contribution through an overarching treatment include foreigner political rights, the validity conditions of direct democratic institutions and of claims to self-government, and the relative weight of individual and collective agency in federal and consociational forms of government.
