'Egalitarianism and Global Justice' by Kevin Ka-Wai Ip

Dr Kevin Ka-Wai Ip (DPhil Politics, 2008) has recently written Egalitarianism and Global Justice From a Relational Perspective, published by Palgrave Macmillan.

In this book, Kevin Ip articulates and defends an egalitarian conception of global distributive justice grounded on the value of equality as a normative ideal of how human relations should be conducted. Arguing that relationships of equality, rather than those characterized by domination or exploitation, are a requirement for a just system, Ip spells out the real-world implications of this approach. Ip defends the ideal of equality against the diverse objections which have been brought to bear, and the responsibilities we bear in our aspirations towards global justice.
