Boundaries and Justice synopsis
Despite the political and economic importance of borders - and the ongoing challenges of existing national boundaries - little attention has been paid to their ethics. This volume explores how diverse moral traditions understand political rights and property rights reflected by regional and judicial boundaries. It is the first book to bring together thinkers from a range of religious and secular traditions to discuss border ethics. Each contributor represents traditional views on the questions surrounding the use of borders to determine property and political rights. What does owning something mean? What resources should not be privately owned? What justifies the establishment of political boundaries between people? How "tough" should these limits be? What rights extend to minorities within the state? Should regional boundaries be compatible with social boundaries? Does national independence have a moral basis, or is it one aspect of modern power politics? Should we aim at a more inclusive society than that provided by modern nation states? The dialogue between the chapters and the thematic summary highlights similarities and differences between representative traditions and traditions that include Christianity, classical liberalism, Confucianism, international law, Islam, Judaism, liberal equality, and natural law.
