In this book I have undertaken to explain two related things: first, the nature and serious limitations of Kant’s commitment to international political reform; and second, the reasons why conflicting understandings of his reform project He at the heart of contemporary divisions within liberal internationalism. In this conclusion, I make explicit the relationship between these two problems and draw together the explanations that have been developed above. In so doing, I want to emphasize the peculiar limits and possibilities of Kant’s thought within the context of the crisis of liberal internationalism noted above, and the divisions among its contemporary exponents that are likely to become much more salient in the years ahead.
