(p.196) 7 Conclusion
Third World Protest

Rahul Rao (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The conclusion summarizes the argument of the book as a whole and restates its main claims. It affiliates the book with a philosophical literature that aims to reconcile general and special responsibilities, but also distinguishes the endeavour of the book from this literature in two ways. First, the book is concerned with demonstrating the political urgency of combining cosmopolitan and communitarian sensibilities given the architecture of threat that confronts the enjoyment of human rights in the Third World in the current conjuncture. Second, the book is less sanguine than the philosophical literature referenced, about the possibilities of effecting a theoretical reconciliation between cosmopolitanism and communitarianism, and more interested in the unresolved contradictions inherent in any attempt to do so. The chapter concludes with reflections on how one might deal with dualities in political theory.
