Abstract

Both the all-subjected principle (ASP) and the all-affected principle (AAP) claim to provide attractive alternatives to standard accounts of democratic enfranchisement, which restrict access to political participation rights to citizens only; yet both ASP and AAP are subject to pervasive controversy. What are the comparative advantages of each principle? Which principle, if any, can plausibly respond to recent critiques (over-inclusiveness, over-demandingness, indeterminacy)? How can ASP and AAP be implemented in real democratic institutions in a feasible way?
