Fairness in Practice

Aaron James

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the main argument of the book. It explains why both nationalist and cosmopolitan views do not account for a distinctive and politically important class of socioeconomic fairness concerns in international political morality. It sets out basic assumptions about the global economy, the book’s proposed principles and their policy applications, and its practice-based constructive methodology.

Keywords:   nationalism, cosmopolitanism, political decentralization, partial economic integration, constructive method, principles, social practice, constructive interpretation, John Rawls, T. M. Scanlon
