On Global Order

Andrew Hurrell

Oxford University Press

This chapter draws together the picture of international society that has been painted and then looks more directly at the normative implications. It argues that far greater attention must be given to the links between political and moral cosmopolitanism and to the possible principles of global political justice that might inform those links. A revalidation of processes of legitimacy and procedural justice is crucial for the development of a stable, effective, and legitimate international society and for the nurturing of meaningfully shared foundations for the discussion of global justice. The ethical claims of international society rest on the contention that such a society continues to be the most stable set of globally institutionalized political processes by which norms and rules can be negotiated on the basis of dialogue and consent, rather than simply being imposed by the most powerful.

Keywords:   international society, pluralism, pursuit of justice, political cosmopolitanism, moral cosmopolitanism, norms and rules, consent
