10 - Persistent Normative Potential of Christian Democracy

from Part II - History and Future Prospects of Christian Democracy as a Political Phenomenon


This chapter addresses the question of the persistent normative value of the Christian Democratic ideology. Having established in Chapters 7–9 that Christian Democracy is not necessarily in the process of disappearing as a partisan phenomenon, and also that it remains a useful category to describe distinctive features of both the EU and USA, I now move on to examine whether this is to be considered a ‘good’ thing, or rather a problem we should seek to overcome.
