A complete Rule Consequentialist theory must outline the obligations of one nation to another, and of individuals in one nation to individuals in another, and tell us how these should be balanced against our obligations to both present and future people in our own nation. This chapter focuses on a few specific issues at the intersection between international and intergenerational justice, where Rule Consequentialism threatens to be very demanding. It explores the structure of the obligations the ideal code places on the present generation of affluent people regarding people in other lands, focusing on the concept of group autonomy and drawing on some recent work by Thomas Pogge.

Keywords:   international justice, group autonomy, nationalism, cosmopolitanism, resource privilege, Pogge, Rule Consequentialism
