Coronavirus and Representative Democracy

We are living through very uncertain times. One certainty is that the new coronavirus has significant implications for representative democracy worldwide. Representation welcomes submissions on any aspect of the relationship between coronavirus and representative democracy. For example, the effect of the virus on varying aspects of democracy, but also how different features of representative democracy are helping or hindering the capacity of societies to deal with it or how the pandemic may have different impacts upon the representation of various societal subgroups. We are interested in both theoretical papers and empirical papers, utilising quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods. We are offering a prioritised review process for coronavirus related papers. If successful through the review process, your article will appear on the journal’s website shortly after being accepted for publication and will be included in the next issue. We accept articles up to 8,000 and research notes 4,000 words long. If you would like to discuss an idea for a paper then please contact the editors via: [email protected].
