About the Author

Richard Shapcott is Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Queensland.


"The emphasis on Kant's harm principle as a method of analysis to determine which communitarian and cosmopolitan parameters are conducive to anti-violence, global justice, and so forth, is rather brilliant and is one of the major contributions this work makes." Journal of Democratic Theory "Unfailingly lucid and admirably comprehensive, International Ethics skilfully guides the reader through the complexities of recent debates on the morality of war and intervention, poverty and social justice, and the rights of asylum seekers and refugees. A strong argument for a cosmopolitan ethic of respecting persons, displaying hospitality and avoiding harm is advanced in this impressive work which deserves pride of place in courses on global ethics." Andrew Linklater, Aberystwyth University "A thoughtful, lively and stimulating account of international ethics that speaks directly to contemporary audiences. It is an accessible yet sophisticated guide to the hard questions raised by moral reflection and ethical practice in today's increasingly globalized world." Patrick Hayden, University of St Andrews
