Abstract:

"At a time when globalization has side-lined many of the traditional, state-based addressees of legal accountability, assigning responsibility is contested in many transnational fields. There, political, economic, and social actors struggle to define the collectively binding rules of moral conduct. It is still unclear how blame is allocated in the new, highly-differentiated, multi-actor governance arrangements by which today's world is characterised. Moral Agency and the Politics of Responsibility investigates how actors in complex governance arrangements negotiate, delegate and distribute responsibility. This book asks how moral duties can be defined beyond the territorial and legal confines of the nation-state, how the moral agency of individuals and collective actors can be enhanced; and how obligations and accountability mechanisms for a post-national world, in which responsibility remains vague, ambiguous and contested, can be established. Using both empirical and theoretical perspectives, the book explores the politics of responsibility that plays out as responsibility relationships emerge, develop, and change. This book is perfect for scholars of International Relations, Politics, Philosophy and Political Economy with an interest in the increasingly popular topics of moral agency and responsibility" --
