The globalisation of democracy as a form of more legitimate representative government has not been accompanied by genuine efforts to tackle the problems of democracy, or efforts to widen the universe of democracy in accordance with the historical changes taking place in social systems and in the light of a desired agenda of transformation. This article presents some of the crucial gaps in the theory and practice of democracy and suggests ways to rethink democracy as a prelude to a genuine transformative engagement.
