Idea of Political Equality in Democratic Thought of Nadia Urbinati and Jeffrey Green

This bachelor thesis is focussed on political equality in democratic thought of Nadia Urbinati and Jeffrey Edward Green. Both authors understand unequal share of political power between citizens as a one of the most significant problems of current liberal democracies. However, each of them approaches the problem differently. Green understands the unequal access to decision power as a today's reality of contemporary democracies that is only hardly going to change. With his concept of ocular democracy, he seeks new ways of popular empowerment. Nadia Urbinati is defending her conception of democracy as a diarchy, which is a political arrangement based on separation of two types of civil power, will and opinion. In her theoretical work, Urbinati tries to combine the reality of today's mass societies with the democratic ideals. The bachelor thesis is focused on these two approaches. First is introduced Green's theory (including the contextual and historic background of his theoretical approach). Secondly the theory of Nadia Urbinati is presented. Conclusion of the work represents a brief reflection about the particularity of both approaches and their importance to contemporary theory of democracy.
