Globalizing Justice

Richard W. Miller (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

An important cosmopolitan trend in political philosophy argues that our demanding political duties to help disadvantaged compatriots have been extended worldwide by global economic interdependence. The cosmopolitans challenge those sympathetic to demanding views of domestic economic justice, especially John Rawls', to justify them on a basis that does not extrapolate worldwide. Meeting that challenge, this chapter bases these demands on considerations of loyalty, fair public provision, respectful imposition of disadvantage and territorial trusteeship that are not pushed beyond borders by mere commerce. In the absence of further transnational interactions (the topic of the rest of the book), a strong duty of priority for compatriots results.

Keywords:   cosmopolitanism, compatriots, Rawls, loyalty, disadvantage, trusteeship, global economic interdependence
