The Grounds of Justice.
Risse, Mathias. "The Grounds of Justice." KSG Faculty Research Working Paper Series RWP07-048, October 2007.
Are there principles of distributive justice that apply within but not across states, principles that only hold among some but not all human beings? This is perhaps the central question of contemporary political philosophy. This paper introduces a set of distinctions to make clear what the relevant views on this question are and then develops a position called pluralist internationalism.
