(p.168) Conclusion Value Democracy at Home and Abroad
When the State Speaks, What Should It Say?

Corey Brettschneider

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter examines some possible further implications of democratic persuasion that might be a source for further study. The first implication is that the book's view might serve as a model for other states that seek an alternative to the two dominant approaches to free speech. The third approach, democratic persuasion, allows free speech advocates to retain the protections against coercion found in rights of free expression. However, democratic persuasion also gives voice to the fundamental value of free and equal citizenship that underlies free speech. The second implication of the book's view is that it can also serve as a model for understanding how to promote ideals of equality in international law without violating the rights of individuals or the rights of states. Indeed, democratic persuasion already has a prominent role in international law.
