Abstract and Keywords

This article provides some perspectives on representation. It first studies the normative issues that can be found in representation literature, before discussing design issues and the question of why cross-sectional studies of representation have not been particularly fruitful. Longitudinal studies, thinking about politics as a system, and cross-polity analyses are discussed in the final portion of the article.

Keywords: perspectives on representation, normative issues, representation literature, design issues, cross-sectional studies, longitudinal studies, cross-polity analyses, politics as a system
