Democratising Economic Power:The Potential for Meaningful Participation in Economic Governance and Decision-Making

Jodie Thorpe and John Gaventa : 2020

Participation is the act of people engaging in decisions that impact their lives. It has been widely promoted in social, political and civic spheres. However, the question of participation in economic governance is underdeveloped. This paper explores participation in economic decision-making ranging from citizen engagement in economic policy, economic development, or the governance of economic institutions. The overall aim of this paper is to learn from existing and emergent practice in order to deepen knowledge on participation in economic governance, contributing both to public debate and future research.
