Democracy in the Light of Globalisation

This essay explores ways in which democracy must be reformed in order to meet the new requirements posed by globalisation. I will argue that the main problem is not how to conceive a blueprint of a global democratically structured government, and define its tasks. The main problem is rather to find out how we could come from here to there. To come closer to an answer, the chapter analyses who or what it is what blocks the road towards global democracy, and why. In concluding, it shall mention some new developments which possibly allow to open a new window of opportunity. European governments will have an especially important part to play here, together with civil society.
