Global Governance and Democracy

A Multidisciplinary Analysis 
Edited by Jan Wouters, Full Professor of International Law and International Organizations, Jean Monnet Chair ad personam EU and Global Governance, Director, Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies and Institute for International Law, Antoon Braeckman, Professor, Institute of Philosophy, Matthias Lievens, Postdoctoral Researcher, Centre for Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy and Emilie Bécault, Research Manager, Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies, KU Leuven, Belgium

Globalization needs effective global governance. The important question of whether this governance can also become democratic is, however, the subject of a political and academic debate that began only recently. This multidisciplinary book aims to move this conversation forward by drawing on insights from international relations, political theory, international law and international political economy. Focusing on global environmental, economic, security and human rights governance, it sheds new light on the democratic deficit of existing global governance structures, and proposes a number of tools to overcome it.

This book will be required reading for researchers, academics and students with an interest in political science and law, and indeed anyone concerned with the future of global governance.
