The current debate on different models of global democracy has at times pitted proponents of ’statist’, ’cosmopolitan’, and ’pluralistic’ perspectives against each other, each claiming to represent perspectives fulfilling normative criteria for maintaining democratic legitimacy in a wider global and transnational sphere. This paper sets out to act in defence of one of these models in particular, namely the Global Stakeholder Model. This defence takes a particular aim at some substantial critique levelled at Global Stakeholder Democracy by advocates of ’statist’ perspectives, whose main point of thrust consists of attacking the model’s underlying democratic principle – the all affected principle, this, in turn, in favour of political bindingness. By reflecting upon the boundary problem of democracy and its newly regained salience in disputes over global democracy, my aim is here to show that the concept of political bindingness is subsumed by the (global) concept of public power and subsequently made obsolete, especially in light of the the turn democratic inclusion might possibly take on a global scale.
