Making off: Direct Democracy in Austria
On 11 March 2015 civil society activists met with politicians and government representatives in the Austrian parliament to discuss how to improve direct democracy in Austria. The debate was the fourth session of the inquiry commission (“Enquete Kommission”), established with the aim of strengthening direct democracy in the Alpine nation. Democracy International’s partner organisation mehr demokratie! Austria demands a three-step procedure of citizens’ direct legislation and a representative survey on the rules of direct democracy.
