In recent decades, there has been an explosion of interest in global ethics. This volume presents readers with a cutting edge collection of the best work on these issues.The topics covered include: whether individuals and governments in rich countries should give more aid to people in poor countries; the causes of persistent poverty in certain countries; the condition under which military action aimed at protecting human rights might be morally justified; the moral basis for the right to self-determination; whether attitudes such as patriotism and nationalism are morally acceptable in the modern world, and if so, why; Can there ever be a genuinely universal consensus on human rights? And what global response might be required.
