(p.19) 1 Legal and Ethical Approaches to Global Justice
The Thin Justice of International Law

Steven R. Ratner

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides the context and underlying rationale for the concept of thin justice and its application to international law by elaborating on the forms, causes, and consequences of the gaps between the disciplines. It also considers briefly the contributions of international relations theory, which while generally descriptive in orientation has nonetheless waded into debates on global justice. Once that tri-disciplinary landscape is carefully mapped, both the imperative of and challenges to the project of thin justice become evident.

Keywords:   thin justice, international law, international relations theory, global justice
