Voice or Exit in democracy

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


According to the proposals put forward by Hirschman in "Exit, Voice and Loyalty" on politics, one could consider the forms of rebuff democracy experiences these days as a modality of "exit" that marks the decline of this type of regime. This article challenges this view by first recalling that politics is not a field of activity governed by the laws of the market, then by analysing the disavowal of representative democracy in terms of a "voice" expressing a critique of the current functioning of representative democracy as well as a "loyalty" to the fundamental principle of democracy: equality.
