Концепция демократии в контексте чистого учения о праве (к 40-летней годовщине смерти Ганса Кельзена (1881-1973))

In this article the author examines the democracy theory of Hans Kelsen. The author accentuates the connection between the democracy theory and the theory of the stepwise legal order (Stufenbau) in Kelsen’s doctrine. Connecting these two theories allows understanding originality of Kelsen’s conception of law and state. According to Kelsen, the issue of democracy is about participation of people at all the stages of law enforcement, and not only at the stage of adopting of laws by a parliament elected by people.
