About this book


In 1795 Immanuel Kant proclaimed that humans had entered into a 'universal community'. Since then, connections have grown ever more pronounced, with the notion of 'cosmopolitics' defining the modern age. This interdisciplinary volume makes a timely contribution to debates on international law, global ecology and economy and transnational synergies.
