In my publications over the years I have
criticized Hegel’s racism, rejected the form of constructivism that Rawls uses
in the Law of Peoples, promoted cosmopolitanism against statism, defended
global egalitarianism, developed a conception of reconciliation for
transitional societies, advanced an account of Jus ex Bello, defended the right
to promote sustainable development in climate policy, defended an account of
the intrinsic value of biodiversity and natural systems, criticized discounted
utilitarianism, developed and defended the anti-poverty principle and the
pro-poor formula for climate policy, and argued for the importance of hope to
political and policy responses to climate change and the Anthropocene. I have
published two books on global justice, Cosmopolitan Justice (Westview 2000) and
Global Inequality Matters (Palgrave 2009), and two on climate justice, The
Moral Challenge of Dangerous Climate Change; Values, Poverty, and Policy (Cambridge
2014) and Mobilizing Hope: Climate Change and Global Poverty (Oxford 2022).
Additionally, I have co-edited four collected volumes, and published over 60
peer reviewed articles or book chapters.
