Main Article Content


The article studies modern problems of the development of democracy. The reasons for rejection of Euro-American democratic principles in the world and future scenarios for the development of
democracy in the context of world development are analyzed. The prospects for global democratization are greatly complicated by the current transformation of the structure of international relations and the asymmetry of its processes in various regions of the world. It is revealed that from the theoretical standpoint different “scenarios of the future of democracy” are possible: fundamentally new phases of the democratic process in some regions and its stagnation in others; interweaving and mutual enrichment of its various vectors. The key factors that will in the future determine the stability and spread of democracy are economic development and political management. The trends and prospects of the future of Ukrainian democracy in the global world are also examined.
