Research Interests

"This part of the “Limits of International Law” venture will include Milja Kurki, together with me, examining the democratization processes and policies promoted by the US and the EU. Moreover, this project will also involve my own book-project on the theory of global democratization. Following several both abstract conceptual and concrete (in part also empirical) studies on both domestic and global democratization, my plan is to develop the main arguments into a book form, tentatively entitled A Theory of Global Democratization: Time, Space and the Emancipatory Process (Palgrave/MacMillan as a possible publisher)."
