9780198704041: The Thin Justice of International Law: A Moral Reckoning of the Law of Nations

In a world full of armed conflict and human misery, global justice remains one of the most compelling missions of our time. Understanding the promises and limitations of global justice demands a careful appreciation of international law, the web of binding norms and institutions that help govern the behaviour of states and other global actors.

This book provides a new interdisciplinary approach to global justice, one that integrates the work and insights of international law and contemporary ethics. It asks whether the core norms of international law are just, appraising them according to a standard of global justice derived from the fundamental values of peace and the protection of human rights.

Through a combination of a careful explanation of the legal norms and philosophical argument, Ratner concludes that many international law norms meet such a standard of justice, even as distinct areas of injustice remain within the law and the verdict is still out on others. Among the subjects covered in the book are the rules on the use of force, self-determination, sovereign equality, the decision making procedures of key international organizations, the territorial scope of human rights obligations (including humanitarian intervention), and key areas of international economic law.

Ultimately, the book shows how an understanding of international law's moral foundations will enrich the global justice debate, while exposing the ethical consequences of different rules.

Recensione:

To understand the current international system as a normative order, a dialogue between legal scholarship and philosophy is essential, striking the right balance between reflections on both practice and principles. In this book, Steven Ratner, a leading scholar of international law, achieves this masterfully. He presents a nuanced reconstruction of the core norms of justice of the international legal order with its major pillars of peace and human rights that is both grounded in practice and transcends it. A milestone for future discussions of justice beyond the state. ( Rainer Forst, Professor of Political Theory and Philosophy, Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main)

Ratner has made a major contribution to a new and progressive development: the effort to bridge the gap between philosophical treatments of global justice, which tend to ignore international law, and international legal scholarship, which tends to be philosophically under-informed. ( Allen Buchanan, James B. Duke Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Law, Duke University and (annual) Visiting Professor of the Philosophy of Law, Law School, King's College London)

The Thin Justice of International Law is a major achievement. It shows how, for all its limitations and flaws, international law contains a morally compelling core, not just in what it says but in what it does. Against the cynics, Ratner demonstrates how the project of upholding and strengthening international law is of immense moral importance. ( Elizabeth Anderson, John Dewey Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor)

Reading Steven Ratner's superb new book is like attending a symphony presided over by a first-rate conductor. We know at once that we are in safe hands, but that we are in for an exciting ride... Here is a thoughtful legal scholar, one well-versed in the cognate disciplines of international relations and global politics, engaging in the difficult and ambitious task of bringing international law scholars and political philosophers into informed conversation with each other, after a long period of mutual suspicion and misunderstanding... Ratner's book is rigorous, timely, elegant, and challenging. It is also, ultimately, a hopeful and inspiring book, pointing us to a thicker conception of global justice to which we can legitimately hope to aspire. ( Christopher McCrudden FBA, Queen's University Belfast, and University of Michigan Law School)
