Abstract

This essay critically examines Carol Gould's recent defense of interactive democracy as an essential component of any viable path forward toward global democracy. It argues that interactive democracy requires more than a 'rights as pro tanto equally valid claims' conception of human rights and that it remains underspecified in the absence of a well-worked out conception of the rule of law.

Keywords: global justice, human rights, democracy, rule of law
