Summary/Abstract: The beginning of the 20s of the last century meant the end of antagonistic policies, embodied in the earlier 40-year cold war, what marked the beginning of new world policy. New world policy has not been characterized by national identities but supranational ideas and collective feeling, and especially economic and political interdependence. The beginning of the 21st century is also unique when it comes to global political language, in terms of establishing that democracy and democratization processes are maybe the most important global political processes. The author analyzes if democracy as a form of governance is the most widespread and the most acceptable political system, when compared to all others. Basically speaking, most of the countries in the world are declared to be “democratic” because they consider political elections to be enough in terms of indicating democratic profile of the country. Among other things, author criticizes starting and basic essentials of theoretical and empirical results of democracy researching made so far.
