The Tie that Binds: Cosmopolitan Obligation and the Primacy of Institutions

Halldenius, Lena LU (2008) In The Idea of Kosmopolis. History, Philosophy and Politics of World Citizenship p.157-172
Abstract
I identify what I see as three aspects of contemorary cosmopolitan philosophy: A certain moral consciousness, a commitment to moral universalism, and an institutional implication of the first two. The third of these is often regarded as a fall-out or consequence of the other two. I argue instead that the institutional aspect should be regarded as primary and that a distinctive feature of cosmopolitan theory is the view that justice is institution-dependent.
