Abstract

Democracy, global governance, and peaceful change are often assumed to be mutually supportive aspirations. This chapter considers the arguments put forward in favor of this assumption, encompassing not only the prospective relationship between peaceful change and national democracy but also the presumed role in facilitating peaceful change of conceptions of democracy in global governance and in transnational relations. Each of these arguments is critiqued, and the chapter concludes by elucidating the limited role in peaceful change of democracy, whether it is considered at the national level or in global governance and transnational relations. The analysis considers peaceful change in both minimalist conceptions centered on war prevention and maximalist conceptions concerning the advancement of global justice, and it evaluates the roles of both established and emerging powers.
