Democrazia e diritti umani

Edoardo Greblo

pp. 73-96

What emerges in any consideration of globalization – despite the style of analysis one might adopt – is its compromising effect on the Nation States capacity of democratic self-rule. Indeed, the shift of competences from the national to the supranational level implies the weakening of the very democratic mechanism according to which any acting of a society is defined as following from its citizens’ will. The main thesis of this article is that a way out of this predicament can be traced exactly in the very idea of human rights as the only conceptual and empirical assumption capable of reviving democracy in a post-national scenario.
