This title was first published in 2000: Part of the academic response to the phenomenon of globalization, this text explores the legal and philosophical implications with particular reference to the problem of international justice. Among the issues examined in the book are those dealing with matters of principle and with the philosophical grounding of international justice: is a moral universalism possible? Are the claims of moral universalism reconcilable with those of moral particularism? What kind of moral universalism does international justice entail? How does the concept of right bear upon international justice? Is justice, both distributive and formal, applicable to international relations? Other issues discussed are of a more specific nature: is there a right to development? What is the role of justice in the resolution of conflict? is humanitarian intervention justified? What are the ethical implications of global warming and acid rain?
