The Crisis in Global Ethics and the Future of Global Governance
Fulfilling the Promise of the Earth Charter1259Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.This thought-provoking book stimulates dialogue and action on the role of global ethics in the governance of both individual societies and the international order. Such inquiry is imperative given the extraordinary challenges that face the world today. Calling for a renewed discussion on global ethics, this unique book responds to two seminal texts on global ethics and the promise of the Earth Charter written by J. Ronald Engel whose pioneering work continues to influence the debate over democracy's place in the Anthropocene. It aims to inspire an active movement that can reclaim the moral high ground and motivate the vision of a just, sustainable future. Leading figures in environmental ethics, philosophy and law approach questions surrounding global ethics and governance from a range of cultural and philosophical perspectives. Emphasis is placed on the role that "declarations" such as the Earth Charter can play in this work, alongside the importance of deepening global dialogues. The Crisis in Global Ethics and the Future of Global Governance will appeal to students and academics working in the fields of law, philosophy and the social sciences, as well as community groups endorsing the Earth Charter and global initiatives.

'This challenging book could not be read at a better time in our troubled pandemic world of 2020. This book made me stop, think, and consider how I can act in my own tiny world to ensure that my behaviour as a citizen of the world makes some contribution (no matter how small) to the welfare of humanity. I commend the book to readers.' -- Michael Dolan, Law Institute Journal 'The scholars in this book have stepped forward in this volume to continue the debate about the global ethics movement, its recent triumphs, failures and, above all, challenges ahead. Anyone concerned with the dignity of the human race and the majesty of Planet Earth, and the contemporary threats to both, will find the intellect and wisdom in the book pleasurably spiritual -- and absorbing.' - Parvez Hassan, Hassan and Hassan, Pakistan
