About the Authors
  • This book considers how the post-Cold War democratic revolution has affected international law. Traditionally, international law said little about the way in which governments were chosen. In the 1990s, however, international law has been deployed to encourage transitions to democracy, and to justify the armed expulsion of military juntas that overthrow elected regimes. In this volume, leading international legal scholars assess this change in international law and ask whether a commitment to democracy is consistent with the structure and rules of the international legal system.

    • Brings together in one collection all of the leading writings on this cutting-edge subject in international law
    • Unique in that it discusses democratization from a legal perspective; virtually no previous material on this
    • Addresses the major foreign policy challenge of the post-Cold War era
