Chapter 4: Exploring the concept of ‘democratic landscape’
The chapter explores the concept of ‘democratic landscape’ as a frame to interpret the processes underlying the landscape appearance, focusing in particular on the level of democracy embodied in a landscape. According to our understanding, this concept allows us to observe not only procedural democracy in decision-making concerning landscape, but also the whole landscape construction process and the substantive democracy of its results, including the roles and interests of different social actors. The chapter discusses the extent to which landscape can reflect substantive landscape democracy, and advances a preliminary set of questions which should be taken into account when dealing with social aspects of landscape, and which could be applied as benchmarks in different landscape studies.
