Abstract [en]

For liberalism, values such as respect, reciprocity, and tolerance should framecultural encounters in multicultural societies. However, it is easy to disregardthat power differences and political domination also influence the culturalsphere and the relations between cultural groups. In this essay, I focus onsome challenges for cultural pluralism. In relation to Indian political theoristRajeev Bhargava, I discuss the meaning of cultural domination and epistemicinjustice and their historical and moral implications. Bhargava argued thatas a consequence of colonialism, “indigenous cultures” were inferiorized,marginalized, and anonymized. Although cultures are often changing dueto external influences, I argue that epistemic injustice implies that a cultureis forced to subjection, disrespected, and considered as inferior and that itthreatens the dominated people’s epistemic framework, collective identity,and existential security. Finally, I refer to John Rawls’s theory of politicalliberalism as a constructive approach to avoid parochialism and Westerncultural domination.

Abstract [sv]

Inledning till etiken är sedan många år en uppskattad introduktion till etiskt tänkande. Här presenteras på ett inspirerande och klargörande sätt grunderna för etisk argumentation och förhållandet mellan etik och religion. Normativa etiska teorier som utilitarism, pliktetik samt kontrakts- och rättighetsteorier behandlas, liksom etiken inom kristendom, islam och buddhism. I boken diskuteras också aktuella frågor inom tillämpad etik och yrkesetik.

Denna fjärde upplaga har aktualiserats och omarbetats samt försetts med tre nyskrivna kapitel: ett om mänskliga rättigheter, ett om etik och mångkulturalism samt ett om idrott och etik.

Abstract [sv]

Det förflutna är aldrig dött, konstaterade författaren William Faulkner en gång, det är inte ens förflutet. Detta är ett ledmotiv i Göran Collstes bok om historisk rättvisa med exempel från Namibia, Kongo, Kenya, Indien och en rad andra länder som drabbades av kolonialismens gissel.

Det är uppenbart att kolonialismens destruktiva följder inte upphörde med kolonialväldenas fall och att många av dagens globala kriser har sin grund i den koloniala världsordningen. De länder (däribland Sverige) som berikade sig på utplundringen av de koloniserade folken har en moralisk skyldighet att gottgöra det som har hänt och därmed försöka upprätta en ny moralisk jämvikt.

Collste visar hur en sådan gottgörelse- och försoningsprocess kan gå till i praktiken och belyser också mer specifika frågor som återlämnandet av museiföremål till ursprungsbefolkningar. Även den globala uppvärmningen – som huvudsakligen drabbar de länder som har minst skuld till den – har en viktig gottgörelsedimension.

Collste undersöker därtill – och med stöd av filosofer som John Rawls, Thomas Pogge och Rajeev Bhargava –historisk rättvisa på ett mer övergripande begreppsligt, kulturellt och historiskt plan. Hur förhåller sig gottgörande rättvisa till fördelningsrättvisa? Måste realpolitik och moral alltid befinna sig på kollisionskurs? Vad kan vi dra för lärdomar av Sydafrikas försoningsprocess och Internationella brottmålsdomstolen? Att vi fortfarande har mycket att lära torde det inte råda något tvivel om.

Abstract [en]

How can ethics be communicated in an age of globalisation? Is it possible to overcome cultural differences and agree on common values and principles that cross cultural borders? How does globalisation challenge ethics and established moral traditions? How are human rights justified in a global context?

This timely collection of essays responds directly to these questions. An international team of contributors pursue issues in ethics, information and communication that include both the classical question of the universality/contextuality of ethics and values, but also new challenges for communication relating to how values and norms are communicated and shared across cultural and political borders. The essays in this book explore theoretical questions of global ethics and ethical universalism, ethics and communication with reference to specific world views and religions, and the challenge of globalisation for ethical communication in particular social arenas

Abstract [en]

Globalisation involves both promising potentials and risks. It has the potential – through the spread of human rights, the migration of people and ideas, and the integration of diverse economies - to improve human wellbeing and enhance the protection of human rights worldwide. But globalisation also incurs risks: global environmental risks (such as global warming), the creation of new centres of power with limited legitimacy, a 'race to the bottom' regarding workers' safety and rights, risky journeys of thousands of migrants and not least growing global inequalities. Globalisation, therefore, is a key factor for today's discussions of justice.

As globalisation connects people, it also raises associated responsibilities between them. Until recently, the interest in justice among political philosophers and social ethicists was mainly focused on the nation state. However, this is no longer feasible. Since economic globalisation affects how wealth and power are distributed globally it has become indispensable to discuss social ethics in a global context and to develop principles of global justice. Global justice, therefore, entails an assessment of the benefits and burdens of the structural relations and institutional arrangements that constitute and govern globalisation

The academic discussion of global justice is vibrant and expanding. In my introduction I provide an overview of the discussions on global poverty, justice, cosmopolitanism and statism, migration, the capability approach and different dimensions of global justice.

Abstract [en]

Wars and injustices can have wide-ranging reverberations. Colonialism ended – with a few exceptions – over fifty years ago, but there are still many traces left. In this essay I focus on two cases of atrocities under colonialism that have left scars in the present and my question is: how can a nation rectify for the long-term effects of an aggression? What is the appropriate ethical response? The two examples are the German genocide of the Herero tribe in 1904–1905 and the British war against the Mau Mau movement in Kenya in the 1950s. The examples are chosen because they both illustrate enduring claims for rectification after aggressions. After the presentation of these cases and of how Germany and Great Britain have responded, I discuss the meaning of rectificatory justice and criteria for reasonable claims for rectification.

Abstract [en]

Recent events have proved that colonialism has left indelible prints in history. In 2013, the British Foreign Secretary apologized and promised compensation for the atrocities in Kenyan detention camps in the 1950s and the same year the heads of governments of the Caribbean Community issued a declaration demanding reparation for the genocide of indigenous populations and for slavery and the slave trade during colonialism The discussion and literature on global justice has mainly focused on distributive justice. What are the implications of colonialism for a theory of global justice today? What does rectificatory justice mean in the light of colonialism? What does global rectificatory justice require in practice? In seeking to answer these questions, the author fills a significant gap in the literature on global justice.
