9780745639697: Justice in a Changing World

Should governments give special rights to ethnic and cultural minorities? Should rich countries open their borders to economic immigrants or transfer resources to poor countries? When framing and implementing economic and environmental policies, should current generations take into account the interests of future generations? If our political community committed a wrong against another group a hundred years ago, do we owe reparations to current members of that group?

These are just some of the pressing questions which are fully explored in this accessible new analysis of justice in the contemporary world. They force us to reconsider the extent of our obligations to our fellow citizens, future generations and foreigners.
Justice in a Changing World introduces the moral debates around issues such as immigration, national self-determination, cultural rights and reparations, as well as resource transfers from one generation to the next and from rich to poor countries, through the lenses of liberalism, communitarianism and libertarianism. In so doing, it helps to unravel the complexity of key ethical dilemmas facing us today.

The book will be a valuable resource for students of political theory, and will appeal to anyone wishing to reflect on their deepest values and commitments by putting them to the test of practical politics.

About the Author:

Cécile Fabre is Professor of Political Theory at the University of Edinburgh.

Review:

"[Justice in a Changing World] is a remarkably engaged introduction of cutting-edge theoretical debates on social justice which demonstrates how normative arguments in political theory engage with pressing issues in contemporary politics ... Fabre succeeds in bringing out the nuances and complexities of each issue, helpfully guiding the reader through the debate but showing that there is no easy answer. This is an excellent starting point for anyone wishing to learn more about the subject."

Political Studies Review

"Reading Fabre’s book is an excellent way to learn the subject. It is accessibly written, but comprehensive, and especially good on the contemporary issues of international and multicultural justice."

Harry Brighouse, University of Wisconsin

"In Justice in a Changing World, Cécile Fabre deftly combines a clear discussion of current debates about justice with a presentation of their stringent application to some of the most pressing and intractable problems in contemporary politics. Both analytical and engaged, this is a first-rate introduction to a major area of political theory. All those interested in the topic can learn a great deal from this book."

Matthew Festenstein, University of York
