  1. I wanted to know what ‘proceduralism’ means in English?

  2. That’s a term from political theory and philosophy. Very quickly: some think that in a liberal democracy if you have a fair decision-making procedure, then its results are automatically fair. Voting is such a procedure: if the voting procedure in a specific country is fair, then its outcomes must also be fair. This is what proceduralism means. The critics of proceduralism (myself included) think that fair procedures might sometimes trigger unfair results. A policy, if it is to be fair, beside being the result of a fair decision-making procedure, it must also be itself fair (as the outcome of the procedure).
    Example: suppose that in a liberal democracy people go to vote for a policy regarding marriage. Suppose further that 60% of the population vote against gay marriage (it happened in the state of California last year). I think that, although the vote procedure was fair, its outcome is not fair for gay persons, so a policy baning gay marriages (as the result of the voting procedure) is not fair.
