Wir brauchen eine gerechtere Globalisierung – diese Einsicht ist ebenso alternativlos, wie sie utopisch anmutet. Um dennoch die realistische Hoffnung auf eine kosmopolitische Weltordnung in Aussicht zu stellen, konstruiert die Schrift einen Menschenrechtsansatz globaler Gerechtigkeit.
Teil I beschäftigt sich mit der Frage der Praktikabilität. Das challenge wird zunächst an Kants kosmopolitischen Schriften herausgearbeitet, um es dann methodisch anhand von Rawls’ politischem Konstruktivismus und Honneths normativem Rekonstruktivismus zu lösen. Anschließend an Max Weber, Hans Jonas und Hannah Arendt wird dann in Teil II eine Theorie politischer Verantwortung entwickelt, die sich auf globale politische Verantwortungsverhältnisse übertragen lässt. Teil III legt schließlich einen Menschenrechtsansatz globaler Gerechtigkeit vor. Diese realistische Utopie ist pragmatisch darin begründet, dass das globale Menschenrechtsregime bereits politische Verantwortungsverhältnisse für die wichtigsten menschlichen Interessen etabliert hat.
Aus der politischen Menschenrechtspraxis und ihrer Idee einer universellen Menschenwürde, so die Grundthese der Schrift, lässt sich eine globale politische Gerechtigkeitskonzeption rekonstruieren.

Thus, after elaborating and exposing those criticisms, the ebook confronts them to the human rights theories of John Rawls and Jürgen Habermas, which will see whether or not they will be addressed. regrettably, they don't seem to be. as a result, having proven that those philosophical money owed of human rights don't reply convincingly to these the postco
lonial demanding situations, the ebook offers an alternate notion that pulls the certainty of human rights from neighborhood practices. it's a multilayer notion which isn't headquartered on nation, yet particularly integrates it in a bigger internet of actors serious about shaping the perform and that means of human rights. faced to the demanding situations, this new notion bargains a promising means for addressing them satisfactorily, and it even sheds new mild to the classical questions of universality of human rights, in addition to the strain among universalism and relativism.
