In educational philosophy and theory, awareness and examination of the politics of recognition and other identity politics preceded consideration of the intersectionality of advantage and oppression. In Iris Young's political theory democracy and justice are closely related. Deliberative democracy creates the epistemic conditions for arriving at proposals likely to effect wise results, based on judgements that are both normatively correct and empirically sound. The problem of intra group domination is compounded by the associated difficulty that the dominant members can eschew reasonableness and use their position of dominance to further their own interests, undermining the conditions required for deliberation and hence for social justice. Global injustice in education also takes a non-distributive form. In addition to the growth of international civil society, Young points as a second sphere for the development of global democracy to the development of global institutions of governance.
