Pascal Lamy, Director General of the World Trade Organization, in the October 2010 Global Policy journal.

“The fact that the governments that represent countries at international organizations are the result of citizens’ choices through domestic elections is, in itself, not sufficient to ensure the legitimacy of the international organizations. …

[The] international community must do a better job of adequately reflecting the interests of citizens. This means integrating democracy more fully into global governance.”
