What makes representative constructivism democratic?

Gustavo H. Dalaqua

Resumo


This article connects J. S. Mill’s democratic theory and practice with the contemporary debate surrounding representative constructivism and argues that Mill’s advocacy of female suffrage affords an empirical example of the mobilization power of representative constructivism. Studying this concrete example of constructivism alongside Mill’s theory of political representation clarifies that constructivism is democratic to the extent it seeks to make citizens themselves appropriate and contest the claims that their representatives construct on their behalf.
