The Subject of Justice in a Globalitizating World

Thursday, 19 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
TG03 Human Rights and Global Justice (host committee)

Language: English and Spanish

Who can reclaim justice in global world? We cannot afford to keep thinking in terms of citizenship, because supranational institutions do not concentrate their power in a specific place but in diverse flows, as Nancy Fraser has underlined. We should rethink the limits that national state imposes when it takes only as possible subject of justice citizens at the same that national state is forced by supranational powers to make decisions that affect citizens but also people who are not recognized as legal citizens. How could reclaim those illegal citizens justice if they are not included in any frame? However, we must have some kind of structure to delimit how rights of every individual could be receive justice. Fraser has developed the principle of "all subjected" to structures of governance who should be included in the transnational public sphere, regardless of which country they belong. If the power of supranational institutions is not in a specific place and it avoid any kind of democratic control, blurring its limits, why national states should be the reference of justice? Economic power has been adjusted to global era through transnational institutions such as International Monetary Fund. Why citizens and human right still in national frame? The Who of justice needs to enter in discussion, because in the light of globalization and the blurring of national boundaries, the nation state cannot be the reference.
