Resumen

Traducción de Juan Antonio Fernández Manzano y Octavio Barriuso Varel

El siguiente texto corresponde al capítulo 15 de Gould, Carol C., Interactive Democracy. The Social Roots of Global Justice, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014. La autora persigue un doble objetivo: profundizar en la democracia y aumentar la protección de los derechos humanos como modo de encarar problemas de justicia global como la cada vez mayor desigualdad económica y la pobreza. Su reto es hallar la forma de abordar ambos frentes desde el plano local, regional y global. El presente trabajo arroja nueva luz sobre cómo el desarrollo de formas regionales de democracia, limitadas por acuerdos regionales de derechos humanos, constituye una importante, y a menudo olvidada área de interés para la teoría normativa.

Palabras clave: Democracia, Derechos Humanos, justicia global, regionalismo

Abstract:

The following text corresponds to chapter 15 of Gould, Carol C., Interactive Democracy. The Social Roots of  Global Justice, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014. The author pursues a dual objective: to deepen democracy and increase the protection of Human Rights as a way of dealing with problems of global justice such as the increasing economic inequality and poverty. Her challenge is to find ways to address both fronts from local, regional and global levels. This paper sheds new light on how the development of regional forms of democracy bounded by regional human rights agreements constitutes an important, and often forgotten focus for normative theory.
