Sample text

However, O’Neill parts company from her fellow Kantian, John Rawls, when she accuses him of advancing an idealized account to support his principles of justice. 717–719). O’Neill’s Kantian constructivist solution consists of offering reliable universal principles of justice by avoiding Rawls’s idealization of agency – which non-liberals find contestable. Thus, in her Faces of Hunger (1986), O’Neill introduces two abstract principles of justice that allegedly can be adopted by all (that is, they are universalizable): the principles of non-coercion and non-deception (or, phrased somewhat differently, the principles of rejection of coercion and deception).

Consequently, the Rawlsian paradigm’s focus on the basic structure does not seem to offer adequate theoretical tools to develop normative critiques of the current international system. This is not to say that normative assessment of international institutions, norms and regimes is not possible, but it means that Rawlsianism may not be the most appropriate framework to deal with issues of global or international injustice. For the Rawlsian paradigm depends crucially on the effective existence of a basic structure determining, indeed, individual life prospects, but also distributing, policing and enforcing rights and duties systematically.

To put it simply, whereas in some parts of the world (for example, local, national or regional economic systems) certain definitions of property rights or tax policy could work successfully to encourage just distributive outcomes and promote efficiency of the markets, in other contexts the very same definitions could not work optimally or fairly. For the integration of the world economic system upon which background institutions for justice could establish effective regulation is still incipient.
