During the new modernity, with the emergence of the question of the democratic deficit in health-care, we have seen the spread of new forms of participatory regulation. However, that this goal has been reached cannot be taken for granted, especially when one considers that these practices are often promoted by dominant players in the field and how they tend to maximise their profit. This article aims to expose the rhetoric of participation in the institutional practice in the Tuscan Region analysing its effects in relation to the redistribution of power in the decision-making process.
Keywords: Democratic deficit, participatory approach, health governance, citizens’ participation, decision-making, field of power.
