(p.1) Introduction
Global Stakeholder Democracy

Terry MacDonald

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter highlights some of the central normative and institutional challenges confronting democrats seeking greater legitimacy in the exercise of political power beyond state boundaries, and outlines the approach taken in this book to these challenges. In setting out the book's approach this chapter explains the ‘interpretive’ methodology adopted in developing the normative theoretical framework of Global Stakeholder Democracy, and further introduces the book's central arguments regarding the capacity of non-state actors to wield public power, the democratic status of stakeholder communities, and the legitimacy of non-electoral forms of democratic representation.

Keywords:   democracy, globalization, NGO, stakeholder, methodology, interpretive, legitimacy
