Cosmopolitanism and War

Cosmopolitanism and War

(p.1) 1 Cosmopolitanism and War
Cosmopolitan Peace

Cécile Fabre

Oxford University Press

This chapter sets out the normative framework for the book. It claims that all human beings wherever they reside have rights to the freedoms and resources which they need to lead a flourishing life, and that national and political borders are largely irrelevant to the conferral of those rights. It argues that the justification for the right to kill in war rests on causal contributions to an unjust war—which applies to both combatants and non-combatants. It also sets out five singly necessary and jointly sufficient conditions under which a war is just. Finally, it distinguishes between a just peace (a state of affairs in which cosmopolitan justice is realized and is not under imminent threat of war) and a justified peace all things considered (where a just peace cannot be realized, for example because it is not feasible, but where individuals’ basic rights are respected).

Keywords:   just peace, justified peace all things considered, war killing, cosmopolitan justice, patriotic partiality, jus post bellum, feasibility constraints
