The need for legitimate opposition and protectionism
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Government.
2014 (English)In: Democratic politics in a European Union under stress / [ed] Olaf Cramme, Sara B. Hobolt, New York, NY: Oxford University Press, 2014, 236-254 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Rescuing democratic capitalism and rescuing the European Union are two sides of the same coin. If the operation is to succeed, we will have to make a clearer distinction than hitherto between demands for economic and for political liberalism. Stressing democracy to the same extent as capitalism, however, will involve more than just developing a political problem-solving capacity. It will also mean defending the space for opposition, as well as protecting the different national varieties of capitalism as legitimate expressions of political liberalism. We will need an element of informality as to the vertical conflict of law. A constitution that is “living” in this regard will be critical for our ability to pursue a democratic reformist approach to the rescue operation, and to avoid falling into either authoritarianism or utopian maximalism.
