Justice in a Changing World by Cecile Fabre
Book DescriptionShould 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.

Books By Author Cecile Fabre
Cosmopolitan Peace, Hardback (August 2016)
Cecile Fabre presents the first major statement of key moral principles which should be followed when ending wars. She defends restitutive and reparative justice, punishment of war criminals, transitional administrations, and deployment of peacekeeping and occupation forces. She outlines practices to foster trust and improve prospects for peace.
Cosmopolitan War, Paperback (September 2014)
Cecile Fabre defends an ethical account of war which focuses on the individual, as a rational and moral agent, over collective groups of people. She offers a new account of just and unjust war, exploring wars of national defence, civil wars, humanitarian intervention, wars involving private military forces, and asymmetrical wars.
Morality of Defensive War, Hardback (February 2014)
International law and conventional morality grant that states may stand ready to defend their borders with lethal force. But what grounds the permission to kill for the sake of political sovereignty and territorial integrity? In this book leading theorists address this vexed issue, and set the terms of future debate over national defence.
Whose Body is it Anyway?, Paperback (February 2008)» View all books by Cecile Fabre
Do we have the right to deny others access to our body? What if this would harm those who need personal services or body parts from us? Cecile Fabre examines the impact that arguments for distributive justice have on the rights we have over ourselves, and on such contentious issues as organ sales, prostitution, and surrogate motherhood.
