Cosmopolitan Norms, Human Rights, and Democratic Iterations

In this lecture, Professor Benhabib
discusses one of the most divisive controversies of our

argue, "the Trojan horse" of an imperial neo-liberal order
extending throughout the globe? Or are they the principles
of any future cosmopolitical order based on the principles
of equality, autonomy, and self-government?
