This book defends the case for the expansion of the democratic model to the global political sphere. Concentrating on the democratic deficit of international affairs, it examines the nexus between the phenomenon of international exclusion and the political response of global democracy. This distinctive position is developed through a critical survey of the principal theories for and against global democracy. The main rival narratives (realism, nationalism, civilizationism, and liberal internationalism) are rebutted on grounds of failing democratic principles of inclusion. Based on a notion of interaction-dependent justice, these theories arguably provide a crucial ideological support to the exclusionary attitude of the current international system. Going beyond these exclusionary paradigms, the book defends a model of cosmo-federalism that is all-inclusive, multilayered and rooted. The text adopts an interdisciplinary perspective that combines three areas of scholarship: international political theory, international relations and political sociology. Within them, a number of contemporary controversies are analyzed, including the ethical dispute on global justice, the institutional debate on supranationalism, and the political discussion on social emancipatory struggles. From such an interdisciplinary perspective derives an engaged text that will be of interest to students and researchers concerned with the key political aspects of the discussion on globalization and democratic global order.

Die Möglichkeit mehrfacher Bürgerschaften ist politisch umkämpft. Besonders im Hinblick auf transnationale Ordnungen stellt sich auch theoretisch die Frage, ob mehrfache Bürgerschaften in Demokratien unterschiedlicher Form und Größe auf staatlichen und überstaatlichen Ebenen überzeugen. Anna Meine rekonstruiert aktuelle Debatten um transnationale Bürgerschaft, territoriale Rechte und Einbürgerung sowie um mehrfache Staatsbürgerschaft, Welt- und Unionsbürgerschaft. Sie entwickelt anhand der Idee der Komplementarität ein Verständnis für mehrfache, sich ergänzende und zugleich widersprechende demokratische Mitgliedschaften. Indem sie diese Konzeption mit den Überlegungen zu transnationaler demokratischer Ordnungsbildung von Jürgen Habermas, James Bohman und Seyla Benhabib verbindet, öffnet sie nicht nur eine produktive Perspektive auf die theoretische Diskussion. Sie lotet zudem die institutionellen Konsequenzen für Räume, Grenzen und Formen mehrfacher demokratischer Mitgliedschaften aus.

This important text explores the widespread contention that new challenges and obstacles have arisen to democratization, assessing the claim that support for democratization around the world is facing a serious challenge. Bringing together leading international scholars of democratization, including Thomas Carothers, Michael McFaul, Laurence Whitehead, Bassma Kodmani, Nancy Bermeo, Marina Ottaway, Shaun Breslin and,Renske Doorenspleet, this book examines the issues relating to developments within non-democratic states and issues related to the democratic world and its efforts to support the spread of democracy. Featuring in-depth studies on the limits of US democracy promotion, the Middle East, Russia, China and new democracies, the book sheds light on such questions as: Is the wave of democratization now in retreat or should we be careful not to exaggerate the importance of recent setbacks? Do serious, sustainable alternatives to democracy now exist? Is international democracy promotion finished? New Challenges to Democratization brings together a variety of academics and writers from major think-tanks in the United States and Europe, and makes the book ideally suited to a wide international readership. This book will be of particular interest to students and scholars of democratization, comparative politics and international politics.

Democratic transitions have occurred in many countries in various regions across the globe, such as Southern Europe, Latin America, Africa, East and Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and these nations have undergone simuntaneously political, economic and social transformations. Yet, the patterns and characteristics of transitions have varied significantly, and different modes of transition have resulted in different outcomes. This book offers cross-national comparisons of democratic transition since the turn of the twentieth century and asks what makes democracies succeed or fail. In doing so it explores the influence the mode of transition has on the longevity or durability of the democracy, by theoretically examining and quantitatively testing this relationship. The authors argue that the mode of transition directly impacts the success and failure of democracy, and suggest that cooperative transitions, where opposition groups work together with incumbent elites to peacefully transition the state, result in democracies that last longer and are associated with higher measures of democratic quality. Based on a cross-national dataset of all democratic transitioning states since 1900, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of international politics, comparative politics and democracy, and democratization studies.

Divided Sovereignty explores new institutional solutions to the old question of how to constrain states when they commit severe abuses against their own citizens. The book argues that coercive international institutions can stop these abuses and act as an insurance scheme against the possibility of states failing to fulfill their most basic sovereign responsibilities. It thus challenges the long standing assumption that collective grants of authority from the citizens of a state should be made exclusively for institutions within the borders of that state. Despite worries that international institutions such as the International Criminal Court could undermine domestic democratic control, citizens can divide sovereign authority between state and international institutions consistent with their right of democratic self-governance. States are imperfect, incomplete political forms. They presuppose a monopoly of coercive power and final jurisdictional authority over their territory. These twin elements of sovereignty and authority can be used by state leaders and political representatives in ways that stray significantly from the interests of citizens. In the most extreme cases, when citizens become inconvenient obstacles in the pursuit of the self-serving ambitions of their leaders, state power turns against them. Genocide, torture, displacement, and rape are often the means of choice by which the inconvenient are made to suffer or vanish. The book defends universal, principled limits on state authority based on jus cogens norms, a special category of norms in international law that prohibit violations of basic human rights. Against skeptics, it argues that many of the challenges of building an additional layer of institutions can be met if we pay attention to the conditions of institutional success, which require (1) experimentation with different institutional forms, (2) limitations on the scope of authority for coercive international institutions through clear, narrow, well defined mandates, and (3) understanding the limits of existing knowledge on institutional design, which should make us suspicious of proposals for grand institutional schemes, such as global democracy.

Politische Herrschaft konzentriert sich nicht mehr allein auf die Ebene des Nationalstaats. Supra- und internationale Regimes wie EU, UNO und G8 haben im Zeitalter der Globalisierung an Bedeutung gewonnen. Wie aber steht es um die demokratische Legitimität der entstehenden postnationalen Herrschaftsformen? Die Autoren beleuchten, welche Rechtfertigungsmuster die öffentliche Debatten dominieren und welche Prinzipien dabei im Mittelpunkt positiver bzw. kritischer Bewertungen stehen. Deutlich wird: Bisher ist die demokratische Legitimität der neuen Herrschaftsformen vielfach noch prekär geblieben.

Internationale Organisationen stehen im Zentrum der Diskussion über das "Demokratiedefizit" internationaler Politik. Während politische Entscheidungen zunehmend auf internationaler Ebene getroffen werden, zweifeln Kritiker immer wieder an der Legitimation dieser Entscheidungen. Das Buch führt ein in die Diskussion über demokratisches Regieren "jenseits des Staates", es stellt die Funktionsweise von EU, WTO und UNO vor und diskutiert, inwieweit das Regieren in diesen Organisationen demokratischen Grundsätzen genügt bzw. wie sich Demokratiedefizite beheben lassen.
