    Unauthorized Humanitarian Intervention.Mark S. Stein - 2004 - Social Philosophy and Policy 21 (1):14-38.
    In this essay, I offer a utilitarian perspective on humanitarian intervention. There is no generally accepted precise definition of the term ‘humanitarian intervention’. I will provisionally, and roughly, define humanitarian intervention as the use of force by a state, beyond its own borders, that has as a purpose or an effect the protection of the human rights of noncitizens or the reduction of the suffering of noncitizens.

    The Distribution of Life-Saving Medical Resources: Equality, Life Expectancy, and Choice Behind the Veil.Mark S. Stein - 2002 - Social Philosophy and Policy 19 (2):212-245.

In Section II, I discuss the life-year maximization approach and situate it within utilitarian theory.

Unlike resource egalitarianism, utilitarianism can redistribute resources to the disabled when they would benefit more from those resources than nondisabled people. Unlike welfare egalitarianism, utilitarianism can halt redistribution when the disabled would no longer benefit more than the nondisabled from additional resources. -/- The author considers one objection to this view: it has been argued, by (...)

  4. Distributive Justice and Disability: Utilitarianism Against Egalitarianism.Mark S. Stein - 2006 - Yale University Press.
    Theories of distributive justice are most severely tested in the area of disability. In this book, Mark Stein argues that utilitarianism performs better than egalitarian theories in this area: whereas egalitarian theories help the disabled either too little or too much, utilitarianism achieves the proper balance by placing resources where they will do the most good. Stein offers what may be the broadest critique of egalitarian theory from a utilitarian perspective. He addresses the work of egalitarian theorists John Rawls, Ronald (...)
