    Economic globalization has brought in its wake a movement toward the privatization of governance and the governmentalization of key factors in transnational global production. States project authority in markets through state owned enterprises, sovereign wealth funds, and development facilities. Enterprises and civil society have undertaken greater responsibility for the human rights and sustainability impacts of their operations as international soft law regimes have blossomed. This panel considers the applicability of the three pillars of democracy—law, representation, and knowledge—to globalization and governance from a rights holder perspective. Should governmentalization of economic activity also bring the protections of democratic structures and principles? How might those be incorporated within the transnational or supranational space where these activities are undertaken? Should the increasing focus on the rights holder in current efforts to manage substantive rights and remedial mechanisms give rise to a duty to faithfully represent?
