Does global democracy matter? Hypotheses on famine and war

2010 (English)In: Transnational Actors in Global Governance: Patterns, Explanations and Implications / [ed] Christer Jönsson, Jonas Tallberg, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2010, p. 177-196Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Would an extension of democracy to global politics have a restraining effect on famine and war just as democracy within states is commonly thought to have? This chapter will develop theoretical arguments that suggest an affirmative answer to this question and encourage the building of a research agenda which submits those arguments to empirical testing. For this purpose I will conceive of global democracy as fostered in part by transnational participation in international institutions. This premise is common in the literature to which this volume seeks to contribute, but it also serves to facilitate an empirical grounding of the theory that I seek to develop: observed variation in transnational participation in international institutions can on the basis of this premise be treated as variation also in a necessary but insufficient condition of a particular model of global democracy.
