As globalization proceeds apace, international law and the scope and powers of international institutions - the United Nations, the Bretton Woods institutions, the World Trade Organization - continue to grow. If democratic values are still an aspiration of the 21st century, then their deficit at international level must be addressed. Patomaki and Teiveinen describe and evaluate a wide spectrum of democratic reform proposals for the UN, World Bank and IMF, the WTO and international judicial institutions. They then explore innovative ideas for new institutional arrangements, including empowering global civil society; a Global Truth Commission; referenda and a World Parliament; a debt arbitration mechanism and global taxation.
