Pyke, John R. (2001) Globalisation - The Bane of Popular Sovereignty? In Sampford, Charles J. & Round, Tom (Eds.) Beyond the republic: meeting the global challenges to constitutionalism. Federation Press, Leichhardt, N.S.W., pp. 205-214.
It is argued that the undeniable fact that 'globalisation' is affecting Australia's freedom of action in some respects does not mean that it is futile to strive for an increased level of direct popular involvment in our institutions of government. In particular, it is argued that we should not be deterred from considering the institution of Citizen-Initiated Referendums (CIR) by the threat of 'redneck populism' or local protectionist sentiments.
