ABSTRACT
The challenges of democracy have changed continuously since the emergence of the concept in the Ancient Greece. The end of 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century has found the international society in the position to manage democracy and democratical life under the constraints of the impact of globalization. The political transformations in Europe in the past twenty years have brought, in different debates, the inventory of democracy and the resources for democratic accountability. The main argument promoted in this article is that the contemporary changes accompanies the liberal democracy, proceduralist in its essence, and requests the democracies themselves the transition from the democracy understood as a technique of periodical choice of leaders to the democracy as form of life.
