The account introduced in Chapter 3 has implications for sovereignty and governance and these are discussed in this chapter. In addition, the chapter argues that: equitable global governance is a requirement of pursuing global justice in a fair and even‐handed way, and that models of global governance (such as the Cosmopolitan Democracy project of David Held) can be defended in light of nationalist concerns (such as those presented by Will Kymlicka) that democracy cannot be achieved at the global level. A major challenge facing global governance arrangements is to ensure they are effective yet accountable. A system of governance that both effectively attends to people's interests and is suitably accountable can claim to have good democratic credentials on the “Responsive Democracy” view discussed.
