About this book


Defending a procedural conception of global justice that calls for the establishment of reasonably democratic arrangements within and beyond the state, this book argues for a justice-based understanding of social development and justifies why a democracy-promoting international development practice is a requirement of global justice.

Bibliographic information


“Global Justice and Development, is a worthy addition to two sets of academic literature, that of global justice and global development. … Culp deftly navigates through vast tracts of literature, and provides a thoroughgoing account of the problems of alternative conceptions of global justice, such as statism, globalism, and transnationalism. This rich overview alone is a reason why this book should be considered essential reading for students of global justice and development.” (Mitu Sengupta, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, Vol. 19, 2016)
