Is it possible and desirable to translate the basic principles underlying cosmopolitanism as a moral standard into effective global institutions? will the ideals of inclusiveness and equal moral concern for all survive the marriage between cosmopolitanism and institutional power? What are the effects of such bureaucratization of cosmopolitan ideals?

This volume examines the strained relationship between cosmopolitanism as a moral standard and the legal institutions in which cosmopolitan norms and principles are to be implemented. Five areas of global concern are analyzed: environmental protection, economic regulation, peace and security, the fight against international crimes, and migration.

'On a whole, the contributions presented here on the subject of migration reveal how important further research on this subject is. Migration issues will become even more important in the future and these studies can form an essential starting point for dealing with them on an academic basis.' Europa Ethica
