What is the relationship between the principles of social justice and global justice? How can we best reconcile the quest for greater social justice ‘at home' with greater social justice in the world? Are the social justice pressures our societies currently face the result of globalisation or are they domestically generated? How can we advance social justice in the light of the new social realities? In this volume, leading international experts offer compelling answers to these questions.

The aim of this volume is to articulate a modern conception of social justice that remains relevant for an era of rapid globalisation. The authors have developed a robust theoretical account of the relationship between globalisation and social justice complemented by an underpinning policy framework that aims to sustain new forms of equity and solidarity.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A very satisfying collection."
International Affairs

"This is a visionary work concerned with what the principles of social justice 'ought' to be in the global age."
Political Studies Review

"Presents a wealth of ideas that will be valuable not only for those in the academic and political spheres, but also for leaders of foundations and NGOs working to promote social and economic development."

"A 'must read' for all searching for a way to make globalisation more equitable and to renew social policies at a time of ever-growing interdependence. The huge challenge of the financial and economic crisis of 2009 makes these reflections all the more timely."
Kemal Dervis, Former Head of the United Nations Development Programme, and author of A Better Globalization: Legitimacy, Governance, and Reform

"From the wreckage of the world's financial system two insights emerge. Global economic integration demands stronger global governance; and the political legitimacy of globalisation depends on an equitable distribution of the fruits of prosperity. Economic efficiency cannot be separated from social justice. This collection of essays provides essential reading for the most important debate of our times."
Philip Stephens, Associate Editor, Financial Times

"Cramme and Diamond have produced a very timely collection given growing protectionist impulses and the urgent need to rethink the governance of globalisation. These original and reflective essays, written by key thinkers and advocates in the field, challenge orthodox thinking about social justice under conditions of economic globalisation. At this moment of global crisis this book deserves to be read as a reminder that duties to our compatriots and to others must be and can be reconciled."
Tony McGrew, Professor of International Relations, Southampton University, and co-author of Globalization/Anti-Globalization
