Report from The Danish Centre for Ethics and Law to the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs

By Peter Kemp, Frederik Rosen

Contributions by: Peter Kemp

This book considers the ways in which a cosmopolitan vision might constitute the ethical basis for the validity criteria of a new World Order, and thus the basis for the validity of international law in a future global political reality. It examines the transformation of some of the fundamental pairs of concepts associated with the change of the concept of the state in our post-national epoch, and it analyses the change of the perception of the legal subject and the new role of the individual person in international law after the Second World War. Finally, it raises a number of questions concerning a cosmopolitan democracy with a network of national and trans-national institutions.
