The Ethical Limits of Global Democracy
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Political Science.
2018 (English)In: The Oxford Handbook of International Political Theory / [ed] Chris Brown, Robyn Eckersley, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses the ethical limits of global democracy, which are here understood as the conditions under which global democracy should be construed (formulated and justified) and promoted in real politics. The aim is not to develop and defend a substantive account of global democracy, but to bring up some basic concerns that are essential to address when analysing the limits of global democracy as well as to suggest some fruitful ways to approach them. The chapter focuses on two types of moral constraint on construing and promoting global democracy. The first type of constraint is set by empirical concerns, which highlights central methodological discussions of the role of ideal and non-ideal theorizing in International Political Theory (IPT). The second type of constraint is set by normative concerns, which highlights questions about the role of principles of democratic legitimacy and their applicability.
