Embedded Cosmopolitanism

British Academy

This chapter discusses the groundwork for constructing a qualified ethical cosmopolitan position. It maintains that normative International Relations (IR) theory must respond to the attempts to challenge the very nature of morality. The chapter distinguishes between two distinct aspects of any moral perspective, namely: the understanding of the moral agent upon which it relies, and the ‘sphere of equal moral standing’ that it allows.

Keywords:   ethical cosmopolitan position, normative International Relations theory, nature of morality, moral perspective, moral agency, equal moral standing
