Many thanks to the IntlLawGrrls for the opportunity to announce Routledge's publication this month of Cosmopolitan Justice and its Discontents, the volume that I co-edited with my University of Oslo colleague, Professor of Criminology Katja Franko Aas.
► Seeks to fill a lacuna with respect to critical and legal perspectives within the field of cosmopolitanism, which has largely been dominated by positive literature within sociology, political science or philosophy.
► Highlights the importance of international economic and investment law and its institutions when assessing the evolution of cosmopolitan norms. Included is a presentation of the Council of Ethics of the Norwegian Government Pension Fund, as an empirical example.
► Contains five chapters by women scholars. Utrecht Professor Chrisje Brants addresses dilemmas related to collective guilt and International Criminal Law; Lucerne Senior Researcher Kyriaki Topidi discusses the process of European Union constitutionalization in Turkey and resulting tensions relating to the values tolerance and diversity; Central Lancashire Professor Barbara Hudson and Oslo Professor Katja Franko Aas both explain ironies related to migration and counter-terrorist policies and practices; and yours truly, Cecilia Marcela Bailliet, seeks to explore how a single act of conscientious objection by an individual American soldier revealed a complex network of cosmopolitan federalism.
