A Relational Account of Global Egalitarian Justice

  • 271 Accesses

Abstract

This chapter discusses the distributive implications of the relational ideal of equality. Relational egalitarianism is concerned fundamentally with relational problems but it is not indifferent to the distributions of advantages among individuals. The task of this chapter is to identify a set of principles of global distributive justice that will follow from the relational ideal of equality. These include a principle against exploitation, a principle of equal freedom from domination, and a principle of global equality of opportunity.
