Summary For at least two centuries, democratic representation & how it should work has been at the centre of many disputes. Representative democracy itself, though arguably the dominant political form of constitutional states, remains a frequent focus of contestation, regarded as incapable of reflecting the will of the masses, or inadequate in today's global governance. This view of democratic representation, based on a reflective & responsive mode, has lately been under attack for its failure to capture the performative & constructive elements of the process of representation. By contrast, the new literature is more attentive to the dynamic & mutually constructive aspects of the relationship between represented & representatives. In this work, a group of international scholars explores the implications of such a turn & the sense in which democratic representation needs the creation of political presence
