Swedish government commission's report on democracy.
A while ago there was some correspondence about this report in Democr@cy
Forum http://www.democracyforum.net/democracy/ in The Virtual Conference on
Technology and Democracy: Government and Democracy in the Information Age,
I am happy to see that the report has been made known in another country -
a notice about it has been published in a german-language newsletter, and a
further publication in german about the government report is announced
Schweden: Demokratie in der Diskussion. Mitarbeiten (Informationen der
Stiftung Mitarbeit - see contact below.) 2/2000, S.3.
Translated from the notice:
"More that 100 researchers from more than 10 disciplines (...) were
involved. The parts together present a compendium of topics about modern
democracy: civil society, globalisation, mass media's effects on politics,
new information technology in the service of democracy, market as political
actor, democracy and citizenry, power sharing, lobby and corporatism."
