Globalization in Democracy

November 11, 2003

Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen addresses the relationship between globalism and democracy. He asks three questions about the idea of a global democracy. Is democracy a Western idea imposed on a diverse world? How can one speak of democracy on a global scale without global democratic institutions? And what are the issues which a global democratic process would address?
An additonal talk by Amartya Sen on the topic "Culture, Politics and Gender" is also available in the Rice Webcast Archive.
