In whose name? Political representation and civil organisations in Brazil
Gurza Lavalle, Adrian; Houtzager, Peter; Castello, Graziela
There is evidence that civil organisations have become representatives of specific populations and interests in aspects of public policy. This paper examines which organisations define themselves as political representatives and the forms of representation they are constructing. It also explores possible consequences of different forms of representation for democracy.
