Research topic

»Justifiable Relations Among Non-Co-Citizens«

Project outline

I examine three normative problems in global politics, in the areas of human rights, trade, and extraterritorial jurisdiction over violations of international law. All three problems require evaluating claims against the imposition of global institutional rules on national societies, on the one hand, and claims to increased global regulation to protect individuals’ basic interests, on the other. I evaluate these claims by asking how the relevant global rules could be made justifiable to the various actors who must live by these rules. (Jiewuh Song)
