Ulrich Beck: Instead of Soviet-style German euro-nationalism, let us create a Europe of the citizens, a community of democracies. How is a European democracy possible without disenfranchising the national parliaments? Assuming one recognises that implementing democratic rights involves and requires many paths, can the democratic empowerment of a cosmopolitan Europe be accompanied by a strengthening of its national democracies in the member states?

Ulrich Beck was one of the leading sociologists of today. His idea of the risk society – later developed into the idea of the world risk society – marked contemporary social theory. His latest work was mostly dedicated to the issues of Europeanization and building of cosmopolitan Europe.

Ulrich Beck is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential contemporary social thinkers. His work on risk society and his more recent writings on globalization and individualization have put him at the forefront of contemporary debates. These conversations succeed in shedding new light on these major themes as well as providing an insight into some of the commitments and beliefs that underlie them  . Was ist Globalisierung? (1997).

Up to now, modernization has always been conceived of, in contrastto the worlds of tradition and religion, as a liberation from theconstraints of nature. What happens, however, if industrial societybecomes a 'tradition' to itself? What if its own necessities,functional principles and fundamental concepts are undermined,broken up and demystified with the same ruthlessness as were thesupposedly eternal truths of earlier epochs?These questions are the focus of Ulrich Beck's Democracy withoutEnemies. The conflict of the future, he argues, will no longer bebetween East and West, between communism and capitalism, butbetween the countries, regions and groups involved in primarymodernization and those that are attempting to relativize andreform the project of modernity self-critically, based on theirexperience of it. The conflict of the future will be between thetwo modernities which will battle over the compatibility ofsurvival and human rights for all citizens of the earth.
