Transnational Democracy

Transnational Democracy

(p.211) Transnational Democracy
From Bilateralism to Community Interest

Brun-Otto Bryde

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that the international rule of law has to be completed by transnational democracy. This is an imperative both from the perspective of a community-oriented conception of international law and from the perspective of democratic theory. Obviously this is an ambitious agenda: the dogmatic defenders of national sovereignty will challenge even the premises of this approach and there are only very modest beginnings in realizing transnational democracy in practice. It appears even more important to defend the most advanced example of this project — the European Parliament — against its detractors, the most prominent of which is the Second Senate of the Court.

Keywords:   international law, rule of law, transnational democracy, European Parliament, Second Senate
