The Humble Cosmopolitan

Rights, Diversity, and Trans-state Democracy

Luis Cabrera

  • Advances a novel theory of cosmopolitan humility to answer diversity critiques against cosmopolitanism and inform the development of more democratic institutions at the regional and global levels
  • Employs an innovative grounded normative theory method, drawing insights on cosmopolitan humility and political arrogance from field research in India, Turkey, and the European Union
  • Demonstrates that the current global system is fundamentally oriented to political arrogance, in much the same way as segregated and exclusionary domestic systems
