Globalization and Democracy in the 21st Century
Volume 30, Number 1, 2009

Globalization is a phenomenon that has been going on for centuriesówith interruptions such as the two World Wars of the twentieth century. In this issue of The Tocqueville Review, the issues associated with the development of political and economic globalization are examined. The issue confronts three main problems that confront democracy in this globalized world, which are: democracy's capacity to produce a satisfactory foreign policy, a direct corollary of the development of communications, the fall of barriers to the movements of people across borders, and the immense financial influence the U.S. possesses over the rest of the world is one in which there are no adequate global, or even regional, institutions capable of coping effectively. This issue aims to discard illusions that easily turn into ideologies, and to preserve and promote ideals that blend ethics and politics so as to avoid the traps of democratic individualism, as well as the pressures of conformity and the tyranny of minorities.
