    Horray for Global Justice? Emergin Democracies in a Multipolar World.Julian Culp & Johannes Plagemann - 2014 - Global Justice Theory Practice Rhetoric 7:39-66.
    Rising powers are fundamentally shifting the relations of power in the global economic and political landscape. International political theory, however, has so far failed to evaluate this nascent multipolarity. This article fills this lacuna by synthesizing empirical and normative modes of inquiry. It examines the transformation of sovereignty exercised by emerging democracies and focuses especially on the case of Brazil. The paper shows that – in stark contrast to emerging democracies’ foreign policy rhetoric – the ‘softening’ of sovereignty, which means (...)

    Institutional Theories and International Development.Nicole Hassoun - 2014 - Global Justice Theory Practice Rhetoric 7:12-27.
    A recent trend in international development circles is ‘New Institutionalism’. In a slogan, the idea is just that good institutions matter. The slogan itself is so innocuous as to be hardly worth comment. But the push to improve institutional quality has the potential to have a much less innocuous impact on aid efforts and other aspects of international development. This paper provides a critical introduction to some of the literature on institutional quality. It looks, in particular, at an argument for (...)

    Rethinking the Post-2015 Development Agenda: Eight Ways to End Poverty Now.Thomas Pogge & Mitu Sengupta - 2014 - Global Justice Theory Practice Rhetoric 7:3-11.
    The debate about the Sustainable Development Goals, which are to replace the Millennium Development Goals when they expire in 2015, is moving very quickly. Weighing in on this debate, we argue that if the SDGs are to be as effective as they can realistically be, concrete responsibilities must be assigned to specific competent actors, measurement methods involved in development targets must not be allowed to be changed midway, and the tracking of progress must be left to independent experts. New development (...)

    Justice, Not Development: Sen and the Hegemonic Framework For Ameliorating Global Inequality.Aram Ziai - 2014 - Global Justice Theory Practice Rhetoric 7:28-38.
    Starting from the merits of Sen’s Development as Freedom, the article also explores its shortcomings. It argues that they are related to an uncritical adoption of the discourse of ‘development’, which is the hegemonic framework for ameliorating global inequality today. This discourse implies certain limitations of thought and action, and the article points out three areas where urgent questions of global justice have been largely ignored by development theory and policy as a consequence. Struggles for justice on a global scale, (...)
