International Law and the ‘Liberal Reυolution’

(p.30) Chapter 2 International Law and the ‘Liberal Reυolution’
The Riddle of All Constitutions


Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines the thesis that a right to democratic governance and democratic standard of government legitimacy today belong in international law. It summarizes the responses of those who take a more sceptical view. In doing so, it sets the arguments in the context of wide debates about the occurrence of the 20th century's end of a ‘worldwide liberal revolution’.

Keywords:   international law, democratic governance, government legitimacy, liberal revolution, democratic standard
