Bell: Ethics and World Politics

Additional case studies

The following case studies, written by Christian Schemmel (CS) and Joe Hoover (JH), draw on, extend, and sometimes even challenge the arguments discussed in the chapters in Part III of Ethics and World Politics. They present a wide range of arguments that probe conventional views, raise difficult questions about complex cases, and present alternative viewpoints for careful consideration. As such, they are designed to stimulate further thought and argument.
