Summary/Abstract: In this article, I shall investigate the way in which David Held justifies the idea of cosmopolitan democracy by trying to eliminate the tension between the basic principles of constitutionalism and democracy. The study is based on a number of comparisons to the classical conceptions of constitutionalism and democracy in the modern age, as well as on comparisons to the theories of other authors, who approach the problems of extending democracy beyond national borders and at the same time „deepening“ democracy by the application of democratic principles in all domains of social life. My objective is to delineate the change in the substance of the main concepts, to identify the new ideas presented through these concepts and, on this basis, to evaluate the normative grounding of the project of cosmopolitan democracy.
