This chapter examines the implications which a pluralist conception of democracy might have for public law in the United Kingdom. It discusses two main issues. First, it looks at the development of process rights within constitutional democracy and administrative law, and analyzes the interrelationship between such process rights and pluralist democracy. Second, it discusses the nature of rights within a pluralist democracy at both the constitutional and administrative levels. It argues that the place of both procedural and substantive rights within such a view of democracy must be seen as a part of the broader political theory which embraces an understanding of the nature of rights themselves.
