Democracy Power and Representation Beyond Liberal States

A pressing question at the forefront of current global political debates is: how can we salvage the democratic project in the context of 'globalization'? In recent years political activists have mounted high-profile campaigns for democratization of powerful international institutions such as the World Bank and IMF, and for greater 'corporate accountability'. In turn, many of the NGOs linked to these campaigns have themselves faced demands for greater democratic
legitimacy. Global Stakeholder Democracy responds to these challenges by outlining an innovative framework for democratizing the many state and non-state actors wielding public power in
contemporary global politics. In doing so, the book lays out a promising new agenda for global democratic reform. It argues that we cannot simply recreate traditional constitutional and electoral institutions of democratic states on a global scale, through the construction of a democratic 'super-state'. Instead, it elaborates a democratic framework based on the new theoretical concepts of 'public power', 'stakeholder communities' and 'non-electoral representation', and illustrates the practical
implications of these proposals for projects of global institutional reform.
