Global Democracy and its Difficulties by Anthony J. Langlois

Book Description

The political project of extending democracy to the global level is seen as the next major challenge for proponents of democracy. This volume considers some of the difficulties which need to be overcome for this extension to take place. The issues discussed include: * Philosophical and theoretical questions about the nature of democracy and the justification of its values * Pressing political considerations, such as the crucial role of elections in democracy promotion * Legal developments, such as the role of international law and judicial networks * The nature of the global political space as democratization brings challenges to the ways in which systems have traditionally been organized Global Democracy and its Difficulties will appeal to a range of academics, scholars and students who work across fields such a political theory, international law, comparative politics and political economy. It will be of particular interest to those with an interest in the political, economic, legal and moral aspects of democratization.
