Overview

Debates between realists, communitarians, and cosmopolitans about the ethics of intervention in world politics are disciplined by competing models of the public/private distinction. Taking insights and controversies from feminist political theory, Lu focuses on this construct to illuminate alternative images of 'sovereignty as privacy' and 'sovereignty as responsibility', and to identify new ethical challenges arising from the increased agency of private global civil society actors, and their uneasy relationship with the world of states in contexts of 'humanitarian intervention'.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Catherine Lu provides us with an indispensible guide to the idea of 'global social justice'. In her hands, the phrase is no bromide - it is a benchmark for reflection, a specific point of reference. This is an empowering book, giving us the perspectives we need, yet often lack, to question the most settled premises of world politics."- Joel H. Rosenthal, President, Carnegie Council of Ethics and International Affairs

"In this elegantly written, carefully argued and sophisticated book, Catherine Lu offers a novel approach to the problem of humanitarian intervention. Drawing on the conceptual similarities between family privacy and state sovereignty, Lu argues that just as privacy in the domestic context has been recalibrated in the name of protecting individuals, so state sovereignty as a form of privacy in the international context ought to be reconceived. Lu shows how cosmopolitanism provides the most reasonable and attractive understanding of the public/private distinction as it applies to states. This is an original and timely contribution to an urgent and pressing topic." - Kok-Chor Tan, University of Pennsylvania
