About this product
- DescriptionCosmopolitics, the concept of a world politics based on shared democratic values, is in an increasingly fragile state. While Western democracies insist ever more vehemently upon a maintenance of their privileges -- freedom of speech, security, wealth -- an increasing number of the world's inhabitants are under threat of poverty, famine and war. What is needed, the writers here suggest, is a deliberate decision to extend the principles and values of democracy to the sphere of international relations. Recent experience does t bode well, but their arguments, which range from reform of the United Nations, reduction of military weapons, additional power for international judiciary institutions and an increase in aid to developing countries, urge new and inspired action.
- Author BiographyDaniele Archibugi is a director at the Italian National Research Council. He is the author of, among other works, Cosmopolitan Democracy: An Agenda for a New World Order and Global Democracy, a special issue of Peace Review.
