Justice, Humanity and the New World Order offers a refreshing analysis of current jurisprudential concerns regarding the "new world order", by examining them in the intellectual context of the late eighteenth century Enlightenment. After setting the historical context, the author investigates aspects of Enlightenment political culture as well as aspects of the "new world order", including international relations, the European Union and human rights. In conclusion, the author introduces the concept of a "new humanism", which he suggests, drawing on certain aspects of Enlightenment political philosophy, can complement the "new world order".
