This book analyzes the argument that states and international organizations have the right to intervene in failed and failing states to build democracy. This is an expansive study of what we call "The Global Right to Democracy." The idea gestates from a late 20th century reading of Immanuel Kant, and the features of this new, assumed right, seem to graft onto international law and thus hand over to international agencies - methods of protecting and effecting 'democracy' in its broadest definition. The consequence may well be a certain alteration of traditional notions of international behavior, including the primacy of state sovereignty.
