Resumen

SAHUI MALDONADO, Alejandro. Equality in the Measurement of Democratic Quality. A Critical Review of Leonardo Morlino's Proposal. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2016, vol.61, n.227, pp.273-293. ISSN 0185-1918.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0185-1918(16)30029-0.

This paper analyzes the notion of democratic quality developed by Leonardo Morlino and the role it plays in his measurement of the value of equality. The first part reviews the idea of political equality from the perspective of Robert Dahl's work, whose minimal definition of democracy is adopted by Morlino. The second examines the value of equality from the point of view of the Italian author, and argues that, in the assessment of a regime, its importance as a substantive value is analytically unclear since it gets enshrouded in the other dimensions of quality: the procedural and the results related ones. In the third part it is proposed that a notion of political equality such as the one offered by Dahl, could provide greater resources to evaluate and carry out empirical comparisons around democratic quality.

Palabras llave : democratic quality; equality; Leonardo Morlino; Robert Dahl.
