(p.205) 9 Conclusion
Justice in a Globalized World

Claus Nielsen

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter shows how the framework developed in the book (a) successfully overcomes the theoretical and practical difficulties affecting cosmopolitanism and statism, and (b) offers a principled answer to the question of extension. While the concept of justice, which indicates a broad category of principles placing limits on the legitimate exercise of coercion, can be extended from the domestic context to the world at large, different conceptions (i.e. different substantive principles) will apply to these two domains, in light of the different forms of coercion existing within them. From a substantive viewpoint, this leads to the conclusion that global justice calls for more than statist assistance while requiring less than full-blown cosmopolitan equality.

Keywords:   justice, assistance, cosmopolitanism, statism, coercion, action-guidance, equal respect, basic structure
