Ethics in International Relations by Mervyn Frost

Book Description

Most questions commonly asked about international politics are ethical ones. Should the international community intervene in Bosnia? What do we owe the starving in Somalia? What should be done about the genocide in Rwanda? Yet, Mervyn Frost argues, ethics is accorded a marginal position within the academic study of international relations. In this book he examines the reasons given for this, and finds that they do not stand up to scrutiny. He goes on to evaluate those ethical theories which do exist within the discipline - order based theories, utilitarian theories, and rights based theories - and finds them unconvincing. He elaborates his own ethical theory, constitutive theory, which is derived from Hegel, and highlights the way in which we constitute one another as moral beings through a process of reciprocal recognition within a hierarchy of institutions which include the family, civil society, the state, and the society of states.

International Ethics by Mervyn Frost International Ethics, Hardback (June 2011)

This collection looks at classical and seminal research in the field within the broad framework of the moral standing of states; the moral standing of non-state actors; and the ethics of international relations.

Global Ethics by Mervyn Frost Global Ethics, Hardback (September 2008)

Challenges the commonplace that contemporary international interactions are best understood as struggles for power. Eschewing jargon and theoretical abstraction, this title argues that global politics and global civil society must be understood in ethical terms. It is suitable for scholars and students of international relations.
