Global Democracy and the Resort to Despotism: Global Democracy Revisited
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Philosophy.
2019 (English)In: Philosophical Papers, ISSN 0556-8641, E-ISSN 1996-8523, Vol. 48, no 1, p. 83-101Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

There exist existential global problems we cannot solve unless we resort to a world government. It is desirable that such a government can be held responsible by a democratically elected world parliament. Hence, global democracy is desirable. However, the road to global democracy is blocked by similar problems that render it necessary in the first place: collective decision problems of a different but related sort. And time is short. In particular we face an emergent need to tend to problems to do with global warming. This means that we have to investigate the possibility and desirability of a last resort to global despotism.
