This article deals with the consequences of global governance for democratic decision-making. Does globalization lead to a decrease in opportunities for democratic decision-making to occur within nation states? Junne shows that increasing globalization leads to an increase in complex policy domains and thus an increase in the number of actors that need to be taken into consideration when making policy. This leads to four indirect consequences for democracy: changes in ‘party landscape’, regionalization of politics, polarization of society and huge volatility. Policy-making more and more takes place at large distance from the citizen, thus decreasing opportunities for direct democratic legitimacy.
