Abstract:As argued in the introductory chapter, the institutions of government and the relations between government and society are currently undergoing important changes. Firstly, the distinction between different levels of government has become more diffuse than ever. Due to processes of globalization and developments in information and communication technology, jurisdictions - from nation states to local governments - are losing their borders. Secondly, both the effectiveness and the legitimacy of representative democracy in its classic form appear to be undergoing erosion.
