    Human Rights and the Use of Force: Assertive Liberalism and Just War.P. Sutch - 2012 - European Journal of Political Theory 11 (2):172-190.
    This paper critically explores the growing assertiveness with which liberalism has approached questions of the just use of force since 9/11. The liberal position rests upon broad claims about the centrality of human rights concerns to considerations of the justice of war. The claim is that a liberal-cosmopolitan respect for human rights forces us to reconsider the conservative, generally prohibitive, position on the use of force defended by traditional just war theory and enshrined in international law. This argument is has (...)

    Normative IR Theory and the Legalization of International Politics: The Dictates of Humanity and of the Public Conscience as a Vehicle for Global Justice.Peter Sutch - 2012 - Journal of International Political Theory 8 (1-2):1-24.
    This paper explores the relationship between normative international political theory and the politics of international law. It begins by arguing that a gap between the normative and the moral still exists in the literature before going on to examine an approach to closing this gap. This approach, it is argued, is common to a plurality of theoretical approaches including liberal cosmopolitanism, social constructivism and forms of particularism. In exploring ‘institutional moral reasoning’ or ‘social moral epistemology’ the paper argues that respecting (...)

    Kantians and Cosmopolitanism: O'Neill and Cosmopolitan Universalism.Peter Sutch - 2000 - Kantian Review 4:98-120.
    The history of what we now term international relations theory is as rich and as complex as any area in the history of political thought. Yet in the last few decades one particular type of political philosophy has come to be almost unambiguously associated with liberal international relations theory. The dominance of Kantian cosmopolitanism in contemporary liberal international relations theory is quite remarkable. Its position is challenged, within liberalism, only by the utilitarian cosmopolitanism of thinkers such as Peter Singer and, (...)

    Principles and Political Order: The Challenge of Diversity.B. A. Haddock, Peri Roberts & Peter Sutch (eds.) - 2006 - Routledge.
    The liberal and democratic political order is underpinned by universal principles of justice. However, the universality of these principles is now being questioned and undermined by challenges from postmodernism, communitarianism, multiculturalism and other forms of anti-foundationalism. These challenges highlight the sheer diversity of cultures and values, treating liberal values and democratic political culture as one idea of social organization amongst many. While social and political orders are capable of almost endless variation, it may be that not every diverse order is (...)

    Evil in Contemporary Political Theory.Peri Roberts, Peter Sutch & B. A. Haddock (eds.) - 2011 - Edinburgh University Press.
    What role should the idea of evil have in contemporary moral and social thought? The concept of 'evil' has long been a key idea in moral discourse. Now, the contributors to this volume make a start on the important task of systematically exploring evil in the context of political theory. Intuitively, we know what evil means. Yet once we begin to think about its meaning we quickly uncover competing definitions. In recent years, political theorists have generally set the concept aside (...)

    Neo-Kantian Cosmopolitanism and International Law: Modest Practicality?Peter Sutch - 2019 - Kantian Review 24 (4):605-629.
    This article explores the practical approach to global justice advocated by the cosmopolitan political theorists Pogge, Beitz and Buchanan. Using a comparative exposition it outlines their reliance on international law and on human rights law in particular. The essay explores the neo-Kantian influence on the practical approach and offers an original critique of this trend in contemporary international political theory.
