International Law and Democracy

Diogenes 55 (4):33-43 (2008)
This contribution intends to examine the role of democracy in the evolution of international law, and equally the role of the latter in the advancement of democracy, or, one might say, in its 'reinvention'. Two aspects of this broad theme are addressed: the influence of processes of democratization at the level of the individual nation on the evolution of international law, and the extent of penetration of democracy and democratic mechanisms within the processes of creation and application of international law. A rich record of examples drawn by international jurisprudence is used to illustrate these complementary processes
