The aim of the project is to examine whether democratic innovations have helped improve the democratic legitimacy in Finland. Democratic innovations are various instruments that aim to increase popular involvement in political decision making. Several countries, including Finland, have introduced such measures with the ambition to increase political legitimacy. However, the effect is still unclear as systematic research is lacking. The research questions in the project are examined with different data and methods to increase validity.
