Referendumskampagnen in internationaler Perspektive

  • Claes de Vreese
Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Varianten und Spielarten direkt-demokratischer Verfahren haben sich in vielen westlichen Staaten etabliert. Referenden und Volksinitiativen gewinnen weltweit an Bedeutung bei der Implementierung oder Verhinderung von Gesetzesvorhaben. Im Gegensatz zu Kampagnen bei allgemeinen (Parlaments-)Wahlen, in denen die Parteien der Wählerschaft vergleichsweise klare Politik- oder Regierungsprogramme anbieten, sind Informationen in Referendumskampagnen meist weniger handfest: So können Parteien intern über den Gegenstand des Referendums zerstritten sein, Pol-Parteien des Links-Rechts-Spektrums können ungewohnte Koalitionen eingehen, oder aber Referenden erweisen sich sogar als Nährboden für neue Parteien oder soziale Bewegungen und verändern damit mittelfristig die Gestalt des politischen Systems eines Landes (de Vreese und Semetko 2004; de Vreese 2007).
