This ebook demands a reappraisal of liberalism in diplomacy conception. in response to the 1st complete research of the guidelines on diplomacy via David Hume, Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek and a brand new standpoint on Adam Smith and diplomacy, the research exhibits that classical liberalism differs considerably from other kinds of liberalism, specially by way of the appreciation of the position of energy in global politics.

Example text

It is now time to sum up the theoretical argument that has been developed in this chapter. The ultimate aim was to show why and how arguments about the justice and fairness of international governance are influential. I have argued that justice norms are part and parcel of a justificatory discourse in global governance. Justification in turn is important to secure legitimacy, which contributes to stable compliance with rules and decisions that these organizations issue. Justificatory discourses revolve around the three core elements of the founding formula of international organizations or regimes: the scope of their competences, the fairness of their procedures, and the justice of the distributive patterns they generate.

Hence, basic analytical terms like equality, desert or proportionality will be used in the analysis, since they are an indispensable vocabulary for the description of findings—even when negotiators did not refer to them explicitly. Negotiation analyst William Zartman has outlined three possible ways to discover justice norms in negotiations. Evidence may come in one of three forms. There may be explicit statements, either invoking justice itself or referring to its principles, such as equality or need or equity.

To establish the added value I systematically confront my insights with rival explanations based on power or material interests as main explanatory factors. In the case of UNCTAD I engage with Stephen Krasner’s (1985) prominent reading of the North–South conflict as a global power struggle. In the case of climate policy I confront various rational-institutionalist explanations. In both cases it will emerge that those explanations remain incomplete when they exclude the ideational dimension. However, I do not suggest a grand re-reading of the history of global governance as a sequence of justice conflicts or legitimacy crises.
