Abstract

Most approaches to global justice are abstract and, because of this, counterproductive. After explaining why, I advance an alternative approach that I call “global patriotism.” The issue of refugees is then presented as an illustration.

Keywords: global justice, abstraction, cosmopolitanism, patriotism, aesthetics, moral motivation, refugees
