  •  Ni Wang    


In this paper, the author will discuss two popular terms, i.e. organized civil society and global governance and their relations. The paper is mainly about organized civil society (international non-governmental organizations) and democracy in global governance. First, the author will provide a few related definitions. These terms, although are highly contested, need to be identified to avoid confusion and internal coherence. Then the author will critically discuss the relations between organized civil society and the democratizing of global governance. Finally, a conclusion about the role of organized civil society in democratizing global governance will be drawn.
