Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Puts commentators on global government in conversation about their often provocative global institutional visions.

Recent years have seen a remarkable resurgence in rigorous thought on global government by leading thinkers in international relations, economics, and political theory. Not since the immediate post–World War II period have so many scholars given serious attention to possibilities for global integration. This book brings together some of these scholars into a conversation about their often provocative global institutional visions. The chapters explore whether a world state should be viewed as inevitable, ways in which global moral and political communities might be sustained, and reasons to reject world government in favor of improvements to governance in the United Nations and other institutions. The book will be of interest to students of international relations, political theory, international economics, security, and gender studies.

“…[a] well-edited collection of thoughtful essays by both established … and younger scholars.” — Political Studies Review

Luis Cabrera is Senior Lecturer in Political Theory at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. He is the author of Political Theory of Global Justice: A Cosmopolitan Case for the World State and The Practice of Global Citizenship.
