Abstract: "In his masterly affirmation of the democratic ideal, Dahl (1989) observes that 'effective participation by citizens' and 'voting equality among citizens' have often been taken to be the two features that embody the idea of democratic process. But he argues that any association which governs itself by them alone should be regarded as conforming to the ideal in a narrow sense only."
