Justice, Legitimacy, and Self-Determination

Moral Foundations for International Law

Allen Buchanan

Oxford Political Theory

An articulation of a systematic vision of an international legal system grounded in the commitment to justice for all persons, this book probes the moral issues involved in disputes about secession, ethno-national conflict, "the right of self-determination of peoples," human rights, and the legitimacy of the international legal system itself.
