Abstract "In this article, I consider the connection between globalisation and democracy with respect of (1) the historical ‘waves’ of democratisation and the (global) spread of ‘democratic’ system of political rule, and (2) the debate on a reformulation of democratic rule ‘in the age of globalisation’, and the concerns with global civil society, global governance and ‘cosmopolitan democracy’ in particular. Linking these two parts are considerations of the question as to whether a universal entitlement to democratic governance is emerging as a right in international law." (author's abstract)
