Seven Aspects of Democracy as Related to Study Circles.
Larsson, Staffan
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v20 n3 p199-217 May-Jun 2001
Applies a conceptualization of democracy (equal participation, horizontal relations, deliberative knowledge that informs viewpoints, recognition of diversity, internal democratic decision making, action to form society) to Swedish study circles. Concludes that study circles are only partly successful: they foster participation but their power to influence social action seems weak. (Contains 49 references.) (SK)
