This chapter argues that globalization is contributing to the emergence of a new global community, consisting of shared understandings, practices, and traditions capable of supporting obligations of justice at a global level. In particular, members of this global community are involved in the same global market society, and together they look to the same organizations to provide regulatory approaches to problems of global social policy. It is argued that these developments allow for the development of a truly “global” justice, including a “global basic package” or “global minimum ethics” consisting of a basic bundle of political, social, and economic rights safeguarded through global law and delivered in a partnership between global and national institutions. It concludes by arguing that globalization is not only changing the content of our substantive norms but also the pace at which communal bonds emerge, allowing us to begin envisioning a “post-global” future
