Restructuring the Word Political Order: The duty to enable developing nations to reach total freedom
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, I argue that every nation-state must enjoy total freedom as envisioned by Martin Luther King - the combination of both positive and negative liberties. I argue that former colonies do not enjoy both positive and negative rights because of the history of colonialism. Therefore, former colonizer nations have the duty to facilitate the total freedom of former colonies. This process involves a shift in the world political order from a Limited Access Order to an Open Access Order, so that every nation is able to enjoy total freedom. This process, I argue, is specially possible through Reparative Justice.
