Intercultural Human Rights Law Review

First Page



First, in Part II we describe equality as a norm of distributive justice within domestic political contexts. We consider and reject the possibility of exporting domestic egalitarian principles to international legal institutions. Second, in Part III we assemble materials for a theory of international egalitarian justice. We hold that the variety of international contexts favors a procedural rather than substantive approach. Third, in Part IV we develop a set of procedural egalitarian norms for satisfying justice within the WTO. Finally, in Part V we consider three policy level reforms that would help to secure the procedural protections required by justice. Taken together, we hope that this argument contributes to the theorization of global justice and helps to demonstrate the possibility of building a bridge from egalitarian principles to concrete reforms in international institutions.
