The Lottery as a Democratic Institution

Abstract : Proponents of random selection in politics have identified potential contributions that the practice can make to the political process: descriptive representation, prevention of corruption and/or domination, mitigation of elite-level conflict, distributive justice, participation, rotation and psychological benefits. We argue that random selection makes its strongest contribution when it selects citizens to function as impartial guardians of a democratic system. This summary of findings is part of an ongoing Research Program funded by Sciences-Po and organized by Gil Delannoi, Oliver Dowlen and Peter Stone.
