This paper by Glen Lehman explores the liberal logic that is used to promote globalisation, and relies on Charles Taylor's communitarian republicanism to consider how it might be possible to moderate some of its more obvious adverse global effects. More particularly, the article explores liberal and communitarian proposals for reform of global governance beginning with Kant's famous argument for perpetual peace. This argument is then extended through communitarian arguments to create moral progress and understanding in the world order. The purpose of this theoretical exercise is to create a dialogue concerning how we might moderate adverse effects of globalisation on communities.
