Open Institutions: The Hope for Democracy

Synopsis

As Murphy and Peck and the analysts brought together for this collection point out, self-government or democracy does not occur in a vacuum. Democracy will occur only when personal autonomy, critical thought, and the desire for self-government are encouraged by social institutions. In this collection, each writer examines a key institution within society and explores how that particular institution can be made more open and accessible. In the process they show that democratization involves far more than instituting a few democratic practices. They emphasize that the democratization of culture is crucial.
