Democracy: The Balance of Globalization and Nation-State

Market and democracy came together. There are correlation and paradox among the market globalization, state sovereignty and democracy. The market globalization had a great impact on the sovereignty and democracy of the nation-state. Sovereign countries are faced with the globalization pressure and selection dilemma between the sovereignty and democracy. Democracy can play a balancing role between super-globalization and national sovereignty to prevent the super-globalization from overly undermining the citizens’ rights and interests as well as to make the country not to be isolated in the world beacuse of too much emphasis on national sovereignty.
