Political space seems to be shrinking, yet the term 'globalization'
is seldom mentioned in connection with political parties. This book
asks whether the time is now ripe for global political parties.
Though global civil society is a buzzword, activists seem to reject
the idea of global political parties as irrelevant. Yet political
parties remain the formal basis for government both nationally and
in the current international system. Looking to the future, will
existing political parties democratize international governance, or
will new political parties emerge to fill this vacuum? Is this a
role that the World Social Forum can play? Featuring contributions
from major figures from Samir Amin to Jan Aart Scholte, Global
Political Parties is an exciting analysis of what the globalization
of party politics would mean for the nation state, global
governance and democracy worldwide.
