    Alternative Methods of Political Participation

    Convener:  Donley Studlar, West Virginia University, dstudlar@wvu.edu

    Synopsis: This panel explores the rise of alternative methods of citizen political participation other than candidate/party elections. Some are traditional forms in new jurisdictions, such as the referendum, but others, such as use of the internet in electoral campaigns and popular uprisings, are relatively new.

    Elections, Parties, and Democracy

    Convener:  Donley Studlar, West Virginia University, dstudlar@wvu.edu

    Synopsis: Parties and elections are universally recognized as key elements of democracy. With democratization occurring in many regions, this panel considers the critical role of these institutions in the functioning of democracies in Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East ranging in topics from voter preferences to electoral rules to party systems to policy congruence.

    The Right and Paths to Hegemony in the Contemporary World

    Convener:  Barry Cannon, Dublin City University barry.cannon@dcu.ie

    Globally, a radical Right is advancing in Europe and North America, while in Latin America it has been eclipsed by the spectacular rise of the Left. Meanwhile in the Arab world, democratic uprisings have led to a re-emergence of the left/right cleavage, and in Asia and Africa the relevance of the left/right dichotomy requires re-evaluation.

    This panel seeks to understand the concept of the Right in this emerging context. Bobbio (1996) holds that left/right cleavages revolve around egalitarianism, with the left more supportive of state intervention to further socio-economic equality and the right restricting this to equality of opportunity. If this is so, what is its impact on the Right at the national, regional and transnational levels, in the current context of globalization, dominated by neoliberalism? And what has been the impact of civil society, taken from the Gramscian (1971) perspective of hegemony, on the development of the Right in these contexts? Further, how does this cross with Right concerns on tradition, the family, religion and other moral-related ethical and social issues? And finally, what is the Right’s impact on democratization efforts, both nationally and globally?

    By examining these issues the panel aims to develop a broad and comparative understanding of the Right, empirically and theoretically and based on case studies and wider comparative studies from polities around the world, with a view to publication in an edited volume/special journal edition.

    Citoyenneté, espace public et participation: nouvelles pratiques et nouveaux concepts

    Convener:  Rocío Annunziata, Universidad de Buenos Aires, rocio.annunziata@gmail.com

    Synopsis: Ce panel a pour but de mettre en discussion des différentes approches sur la citoyenneté, l’espace public et la participation ainsi que de faire dialoguer des divers cas empiriques. Pendant les dernières années les discours scientifiques et politiques ont donné un ressort remarquable à ces trois notions. Nous sommes face à l’émergence des pratiques politiques qui peuvent être considérées nouvelles : les manifestations spontanées de protestation dans la rue, -d’habitude fortement critiques du pouvoir et des partis politiques, les dispositifs dits « participatifs » proliférant surtout à l’échelle locale mais de manière globale, la judiciarisation de la politique, le rôle central des Médias et des sondages d’opinion publique, l’expérimentation des formes de délibération avec des « mini-publics », les changements de comportements électoraux, la quête pour la reconnaissance des différences identitaires.

    Comment mettre en concept ces expériences nouvelles ? Les concepts utilisés d’habitude par les sciences sociales sont-ils outils pour bien les saisir?  Quels sont, par exemple, les frontières entre le public et le privé lors que nous parlons d’ « espace public »? Comment une question devient-elle « publique » ? Devons-nous parler de « citoyenneté » lorsqu’elle se mobilise, lorsqu’elle « participe », lorsqu’elle vote, lorsqu’elle est consultée passivement ou lorsqu’elle appelle aux « droits » ? Comment concevoir la diversité de ses formes d’expression politique et culturelle ?

    Regional Elections: Beyond Mid-Term and Second-Order Elections

    Convenor:  Régis Dandoy, Université Libre de Bruxelles rdandoy@ulb.ac.be

    Most countries in Europe have a regional level of government, i.e. an intermediate tier of government which is situated below the national and above the local level. The regional tier possesses its own institutions, often holds elections and has distinct political actors. This leads to the question whether the regional level is politically distinct from other policy levels and whether region-specific institutions, actors and elections processes can be observed. In this panel, we invite regional election experts mainly from East- or non-European countries to reflect upon the question of how far regional elections have (developed) their own logic according to a fixed set of variables and questions.

    The rationale for this panel is threefold. First, we would like to challenge the dominant approach in studying regional elections, i.e. second-order theory, by showing its limited explanatory value for most regional elections. Second, regional elections are relatively under-researched compared to national elections. With this panel, we would like to provide a valuable data source which will enable scholars to do comparative research. Third, the individual country papers explore the conditions and variables which differentiate regional elections from those held at the state-wide level. Ultimately, we aim to provide the building blocks for a theory on regional elections and to suggest fruitful avenues to study regional elections.

    6. Electoral Systems

    Convenor: Donley T. Studlar, West Virginia University dstudlar@wvu.edu

    Electoral systems have long been identified as a key institutional variable for understanding democracy, especially how elections influence the party system, legislative composition, and government formation. This panel provides an opportunity to assess the impact of differing electoral systems in a variety of countries around the world.
