In today's world, political authority increasingly eludes sovereign states, to be located instead in transnational and sometimes global political and economic processes. If legitimate authority is to be democratic, then this requirement applies no less to legitimate international authority. Global governance is examined in deliberative democratic light, emphasizing in the first instance the construction of transnational publics and the engagement of discourses in transnational public spheres as components of transnational democracy. As hegemony yields to contestation in global politics, the prospects for such engagement improve. All the ideas about legitimacy, representation, rhetoric, and meta-consensus developed in other chapters prove applicable to global deliberative systems. There may even be a place for mini-publics at the global level.

Keywords:   global governance, transnational democracy, public spheres, legitimacy, representation, rhetoric, meta-consensus, mini-publics
