Piecing a Democratic Quilt: Regional Organizations and Universal Norms

Some brief overview of book

In recent years, a democratic entitlement doctrine, in which citizens have a universal right to be governed according to democratic standards, has begun to take form in international law. Acceptance of this doctrine is widely, but not fully, shared throughout the world. Developing a global consensus on democratic entitlement has been, and continues to be, a daunting task.

While domestic factors, including the growth of civil society and the functioning of the state government, will always play a significant role in the level of democratization within a state, increasingly important components of this international factor are regional organizations. The role of regional organizations is an at-times compelling and important, but as yet highly uneven and incomplete, story.
