It is a great honour to have Cosmopolitan Justice reviewed in the
pages of this journal. Indeed, the range and quality of the reviews are
terrific, in the multiple senses of that word. I regret that I do not have
the opportunity to respond fully to any of the reviews. Nonetheless, I
shall try to do justice to the most serious issues raised.
The next section, the most abstract of five, addresses challenges to
the constructivist justification in Cosmopolitan Justice as well as the
nature of duties of justice in the absence of a legal framework.
Although this section may be particularly interesting to students of
philosophy, those whose interests are relatively more applied can skip
ahead. Section III takes up the issues of sovereignty and intervention;
Section IV addresses matters of distributive justice.
