Back cover copy

This book explores the boundaries of democratic communities, examining who is included in these boundaries and governed by them. Focus is placed on the consequences of globalization for democracy, especially in light of the exclusion that global policies impose on many citizens.

The essays within this collection discuss the question of whether democracy implies exclusion or the construction of borders; and if this is the case, what form the exclusion or borders would take, and whether it is possible to justify them. More importantly, if democracy does require some kind of exclusion, is the idea of global democracy then rendered paradoxical? Is it possible to create a democracy on a global level?

In the current world order, examining the case for global democracy is crucial; the essays in this book reflect this importance, and present a state-of-the-art analysis of the normative foundations of global democracy.
