One of the truly revolutionary developments in global affairs over the last half-century is the development of an international global architecture, replete with international norms, laws, and governmental and nongovernmental organizations. We are arguably witnessing the emergence of a global community that has developed new kinds of obligations to distant strangers and imagining new forms of interventions that will remove various causes of suffering. Yet there also is cause for greater sobriety.

This book, featuring published essays and new essays, provides a critical exploration of the politics and practice of global ethical interventions. Michael Barnett explores three defining themes and tensions that run through the essays regarding the relationship between global governance, ethics, and international order. The volume will be organized into two key parts.

- Section I focuses on different ways to think about the relationship between world orders and the UN.

- Section II provides a critical examination of international ethics in practice. Ethics have become institutionalized in global affairs, and institutionalization can transform and transfigure ethical commitments.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars of global governance, international organizations, the United Nations system, humanitarian intervention, development, security and international ethics.
