Global Justice, Global Governance, and International Law

Global Justice, Global Governance, and International Law

Comment on Eyal Benvenisti

(p.364) 23 Global Justice, Global Governance, and International Law
The International Rule of Law

Maurice Kamto

Oxford University Press

The chapter comments on Eyal Benvenisti’s discussion of international law’s contribution to global justice. It puts forward that global justice at the international level can only be the result of a permanent bargain and a compromise between the multiple and conflicting interests among states. It emphasizes that better governance at the global level involving the sharing of the policy-making and decision-making, accountability, the rule of law, and sanctions can help improve global justice. It concludes by suggesting that if international law could contribute to the advent of global justice in a move from ‘Responsibility to protect’ to ‘Responsibility to develop’, it would open a new era for its rise amongst nations and peoples.
