Overview

The Transformation of Democracy? examines whether globalization is transforming the conditions under which liberal democratic politics operate and, given this, what the prospects are for a more democratic world order.

The book is divided into two parts: Part I: 'Global Transformations', asks whether globalization is transforming the conditions of liberal democratic governance.

Part II: 'Democratizing World Order', critically evaluates the prospects for democratizing global forces through an examination of the reform of global governance: the democratic potential of the EU; international initiatives to develop greater democratic accountability of multinational corporate capital; and universal human rights.

The final chapter reflects upon the meaning of democracy in the context of contemporary patterns of globalization and regionalization.

The contributors to the volume include Robert Cox, Donna Dickenson, Tony Evans, Mark Imber, David Goldblatt, Anthony McGrew, James Goodman, Grahame Thompson, and Martin Shaw.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Many volumes have tacked the question of globalisation, but few approach the topic explicitly in relation to the present and future shape of democracy, particularly in a manner which is accessible to undergraduate students. The Transformation of Democracy? does just that, presenting with clarity the incisive arguments and complex paradoxes associated with this most pertinent of issues in international relations."
