Chapter Summary

International migration, especially in its transnational context, is generating ethno-national diasporas that are becoming growing components in many Western countries, including the United States. The term democracy inspires people's political demands and passions. The relationship between democracy and freedom is often the focus of theoretical discussions. Some would even claim that the two are diametrically opposed. However, the majority of liberalists emphasize the complementary nature and interdependency of the two. Economic democracy refers to a system in which fundamental issues regarding the course of economic development are determined by the forces of production and consumption. While economic democracy presupposes some sort of social system or structure, it does not constitute a government-controlled planned economy. The issue of greatest contention within political democracy is the relationship between direct and indirect democracy. Ultimately, democracy is the implementation of the political choices of the majority.

Keywords: economic democracy; ethno-national diasporas; freedom; international migration
