How referendums challenge European democracy

  1. Rose, Richard, 1933- How referendums challenge European democracy : brexit and beyond / Richard Rose. -- Cham : Palgrave Macmillan, [2020]. -- ©2020. -- (Palgrave studies in European Union politics). -- Anotace: "This book explains how citizens are using referendums to challenge decisions taken by the European Union. The opening chapters compare the two chief institutions of electoral democracy: parliamentary elections to decide who governs, and referendums to decide policies. The EU relies on international treaties for its authority to make policies. Chapters analysing referendum voting on Europe in Britain, Greece and the Netherlands show that cultural values can have a stronger influence than class. The book uses Brexit – the British referendum in which a majority voted for the UK leaving the European Union – as the leading example of a conflict between national voters and the EU." --Cover. -- ISBN : 978-3-030-44116-6 (vázáno). *2Palgrave studies in European Union politics0 referendum * demokracie * členství v Evropské unii * Evropská unie
