Power and the politics of difference: Oppression, empowerment, and transnational justice

Hypatia 23 (3):pp. 156-172 (2008)
Abstract
This paper examines Young’s conception of power, arguing that it is incomplete, in at least two ways. First, Young tends to equate the term power with the narrower notions of ‘ oppression ’ and ‘domination’. Thus, Young lacks a satisfactory analysis of individual and collective empowerment. Second, as Young herself admits, it is not obvious that her analysis of power can be useful in the context of thinking about transnational justice. Allen concludes by considering one way in which Young’s analysis of power needs to be extended or perhaps modified in order to do justice to questions of transnational justice
