The APSA task force report

“The APSA task force report, Democratic Imperatives, argues that in emerging and established democracies alike, the promise of democracy remains unfulfilled. The report focuses on policies and institutions designed to deepen democracy by increasing respect for human rights, promoting participatory governance, and securing the economic bases of democratic citizenship. It documents how these measures can help to reduce democratic deficits by making government and politics more responsive, more accountable and more transparent and by enabling citizens to take a greater role in governing themselves.” – PR Newswire
