A troubled reconciliation: a critical assessment of Tan's Liberal Cosmopolitanism

Abstract
Kok?Chor Tan argues for a conception of Liberal Cosmopolitanism that seeks to reconcile ideals of global justice and national partiality. I provide two objections to his luck egalitarian model of global justice: first, it fails to provide adequate space for legitimate cultural variation with respect to the understanding of and valuing of natural resources; and second, that its account of ideas of collective responsibility is restricted to a point at which it becomes unrecognizable and inefficacious. I conclude with some reflections on the implications of my analysis for the more general question of whether or how national partiality and global justice can be reconciled
