MONSIVAIS CARRILLO, Alejandro. Para repensar la profundización democrática: ideales, conceptos y desafíos analíticos. Estud. front [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.28, pp.131-154. ISSN 2395-9134.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the conceptual frontlines of a theory of the deepening of democracy. First, the contributions and limitations of the literature on the quality of democracy are discussed. Then, it is argued the necessity of reconstructing the principles related to the idea of democracy in order to discern the regulative ideals that should be subjects of empirical scrutiny. The challenge is to open new research agendas centered on those elements that constitute a lively and robust democracy. This will imply the task of rethinking the concepts of participation, political competition, and popular control of public action.

Keywords : quality of democracy; political regimes; normative theory; political analysis; conceptual analysis.
