Omtale Democracy and International Relations
Democracy and International Relations is the first study of the relevance and applicability of international relations theory to the explanation of the contemporary global push for liberal democracy by the major western powers and international organizations - including the UN, the EU and the international financial institutions such as the World Bank and the IMF. Contributors are leading international relations theorists who draw from current international relations theory, democratic theory, discourse ethics, cultural anthropology and development studies traditions to argue that contemporary international relations theories fail in their understanding of these important global trends; the contributors suggest ways forward so as to provide a fruitful and dynamic research programme for the future. In addition, because they are also eminent experts in specific geographical areas, the book provides state-of-the-art commentaries on what the push for liberal democracy means for those at the receiving end of global democratization policies - in Asia, Latin and Central America, southern Africa, Russia and the Middle East.
