Justice Beyond Borders: A Global Political Theory

Simon Caney


Examines which political principles should govern global politics. It explores ethical issues in justice that arise at the global level and addresses questions such as: are there universal values, and if so, what are they; what human rights, if any, are there; are there global principles of distributive justice; should there be a system of supra-state institutions; is national self-determination defensible; when, if ever, may political regimes wage war; and is humanitarian intervention justified?

Keywords: civil rights, cosmopolitanism, distributive justice, ethics, global justice, global politics, human rights, humanitarian intervention, injustice, just war, justice, political theory, principles, society of states, supra-state political institutions, universal values
