This chapter examines the participationist view of democracy. It explains that unlike popular sovereignty and liberal theorists, participationist theorists focus on the consequences of the process by which decisions are reached. Under the participationist view, democracy is considered as a means by which a great mass of the people are regularly, actively, and intimately involved in the making and implementation of public policies.
