Publisher: Springer Netherlands
This book aims to provide cutting edge essays by leading scholars on cosmopolitanism. Cosmopolitanism is an emerging movement in global ethics and provides a meeting point between theorists of international law, political science, political philosophy, applied ethics, economics, development studies, and international relations. The second International Conference of the International Global Ethics Association will be held in Melbourne, Australia in June 2008 on the theme of ‘Questioning Cosmopolitanism’ and will attract major scholars from around the world. It is envisaged that the best essays from this conference will be published in the proposed book.
