Global Legitimation and Reasonableness
Human societies are at once confronted with a social story of cooperation and con- flict and a cultural story of identity and difference. This parallel story concerns both the internal life of any society and its international relations. It is generally the rule, of course, to imagine some overlap between the socio-economic side and the cultural side of the narrative. Identity based conflicts, for example, are often sparked and exacerbated for reasons of socio-economic background.
