International Democracy and the West: The Roles of Governments, Civil Society, and Multinational Business

Richard Youngs


This book adds to debates on the international dimensions of democratisation by exploring the politics and actions of Western governments, multinational companies, and non-profit organisations (NGOs). It finds that governments, businesses and NGOs all show increased concern for democratic trends, but their strategies are beset by uncertainty and ambivalence.

Keywords: democratisation, international democracy, Western governments, multinational companies, NGOs
