The PhD thesis examines the theoretical foundations of the All Affected Principle (AAP) and their relevance for the legitimacy of democratic decisions. Based on an analysis of the two predominant interpretations of the AAP, the thesis develops two categories of democratic participation: Voice and Vote. The first part explores theories of democratic legitimacy and the Boundary Problem of democracy and derives principles of democratic legitimacy. The second part investigates the theoretical framework of Voice and Vote and the conceptual links to democratic legitimacy. The third part draws comparisons to historical roots and develops a corresponding understanding of political representation. The thesis concludes with a discussion of implications for intergenerational justice and institutional design.

Aufbauend auf einer Analyse der zwei dominanten Interpretationen des AAP werden zwei Kategorien demokratischer Partizipation entwickelt: Voice and Vote. Der erste Teil der Arbeit diskutiert Theorien demokratischer Legitimität und des Boundary Problems und leitet Prinzipien demokratischer Legitimität ab. Der zweite Teil erforscht den theoretischen Rahmen von Voice and Vote und stellt die Verbindungen zu demokratischer Legitimität heraus. Der dritte Teil der Arbeit zieht Vergleiche zu historischen Wurzeln des AAP und einem korrespondieren Verständnis politischer Repräsentation.
