Justice, Cosmopolitanism and Policy Prescription: Gillian Brock’s "Global Justice"

Diametros 31:138-145 (2012)

Cindy Holder
University of Victoria
In Global Justice: A Cosmopolitan Account Gillian Brock emphasizes the compellingness of specific institutional and policy prescriptions, clarifies the relationship between cosmopolitanism and Rawlsian internationalism, and shifts the terrain on which arguments for global justice play out. In this, Brock makes her own view and the debates themselves more interesting and of interest to a broader audience. However she also brings to the fore a difficult question: What, exactly, do we add to our understanding when we think about the actions we ought to take as duties of cosmopolitan justice as opposed to requirements of basic human decency?
