This article explores the normative merits of electoral representation against the backdrop of recent theoretical trends. In particular, it defends the 'parliamentarization of citizenship' as a process that promotes political reflection and ensures a fair management of political dissensus. These advantages are compared with core principles that are implicit in deliberative democracy, post-democracy and technocracy.
