Direct democracy is popular. Referenda are an increasingly important means of enacting or preventing legislation in countries around the world. This book focuses on the key actors in a referendum (the political elites/ parties, the media and citizens) and is centered around themes such as campaign style, campaign effects, electoral mobilization and turnout, as well as vote choice. The contributors specifically address the role of referendum campaigns and their impact and show why referendum campaigns may matter more than any other political election campaigns.
