The article discusses whether the democracy is a product of exclusively a particular (Western) form of civilization or an essential stage of political development of any society on a certain stage of its modernization. The author in particular stresses the fact that the process of democratization in different regions of the world is asymmetric. If Western societies today are facing a problem of disfunctions of a representative democracy, a problem of bringing its institutions in accordance with a realities of the post industrial era, the societies of the South and the East will have to take up a most complicated process of working out and "mastering" a democratic practice that would be adequate to their conditions. Various "scenarios of the future" are possible: principally new phases of the democratic process in one region and its stagnation in the others; an "interaction" and mutual enrichment of its different streams. Even if there is one universal democratic civilization, by all probability, it would not be of the same type everywhere.
