International justice and the basic needs principle

In Gillian Brock & Harry Brighouse (eds.), Protosociology. Cambridge University Press. pp. 39--54 (2005)
Abstract
According to the basic needs principle, a state in favorable circumstances must enable its members to meet their basic needs throughout a normal life-span. Applied to the international situation, I argue, this principle implies that a global state would have a duty to enable subordinate states to meet their members‘ needs. In the absence of a global state, existing states have a duty to work to create a system of institutions that would enable each state to meet its members‘ needs. Near the conclusion, I respond to skeptical objections about global justice
