My argument is that oppressive states might see emergences of cosmopolitan imaginations, such as a cosmopolitan outlook, as a threat towards their self preservation and that they on these grounds take measures to hinder such emergences. My main conclusion is that a global public sphere is a space where cosmopolitan imaginations might be globally conceived and on these grounds I stress the importance of a global public sphere modelled upon the concept of discourse ethics.
