Democratic Governance for a Globalized World

  • Eichenberger, Reiner
  • Frey, Bruno S

Globalization creates a new dynamic geography of political problems, which is incompatible with the rigid boundaries of established democratic structures. We discuss this conflict within a behavioral framework which incorporates individuals' civic virtue and suggest ways to overcome it. We advance three new types of flexible democratic governance. The first proposal extends the concept of citizenship to institutions beyond states in order to provide a sense of belonging and to therewith bolster civic virtue. The second and third proposals allow for jurisdictions to adjust to the geography of problems as well as the international exchange of politicians.
