about

The Frontiers of Democracy offers a comprehensive examination of restrictions on the vote in democracies today. For the first time, the reasons for excluding people (prisoners, children, intellectually disabled, non-citizens) from the suffrage in contemporary societies is critically examined from the point of view of democratic theory.
LUDVIG BECKMAN is Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science, Stockholm University, Sweden. He took his PhD at Uppsala University and has since published on genetics and privacy, childrens rights, environmental justice, political professionalism and democratic theory.
