Voice Representation and People’s Democracy

Publisher: ActionAid

2012

This resource book is about people’s participation in decision-making and about people’s right to have a ‘voice’, to be heard and to choose their own representatives. It is helpful for local level civil society practitioners who want to make their own voice heard, and who want to involve more people in their efforts to make their opinions and ideas heard at the local level. The publication argues that if rights are to be
fulfilled they also need to be protected by governance systems which themselves respect human rights. It concludes that people’s voice and representation is also one of the most important ways of overcoming failures of democracy. People’s voice and representation is therefore a means for ensuring the fulfilment of people’s rights and a means to ensuring that democracy functions in the name of all
people.
