Pettit: A Republican Law of Peoples

Philip N. Pettit (Princeton Univ. - Politics) has posted A Republican Law of Peoples (European Journal of Political Theory, forthcoming). Here's the abstract:
Taking states as they are (at their best), what shape ought the international order to have? In particular what shape ought it to have if the guiding value is not as austere as non-intervention among states and not as rich as cosmopolitan justice: if it is the value of freedom as non-domination? The paper seeks to outline the requirements that this value would have in the international context.
