The Grounds of Justice

The Grounds of Justice

(p.1) Chapter 1 The Grounds of Justice
On Global Justice

Mathias Risse

Princeton University Press

This book explores the question of what it is for a distribution to be just globally and proposes a new systematic theory of global justice that it calls pluralist internationalism. Up to now, philosophers have tended to respond to the problem of global justice in one of two ways: that principles of justice either apply only within states or else apply to all human beings. The book defends a view “between” these competing claims, one that improves on both, and introduces a pluralist approach to what it terms the grounds of justice—which offers a comprehensive view of obligations of distributive justice. It also considers two problems that globalization has raised for political philosophy: the problem of justifying the state to outsiders and the problem of justifying the global order to all.

Keywords:   global justice, pluralist internationalism, ground of justice, globalization, political philosophy, states, global order, distributive justice
