Subject: [gha] World Citizen Bibliography.

Citizens of the World: A bibliography of current writings in English
Rene Wadlow, President, Association of World Citizens
                   Much of the world citizen approach to world politics can be 
called “cosmopolitan”. In a world of growing interdependence, cosmopolitanism 
deals primarily with a specific range of issues: world security, international 
efforts for human rights, financial and economic regulation, migration due to 
economic conditions and increasingly to climate change, ecologically-sound 
development, and intercultural dialogue.
                   Although the term and many core ideas of the cosmopolitan 
ethos can be traced back to Classic Greek and Roman Stoics, as the term is now 
used, it is based on 18th century Enlightenment thought with its emphasis on 
human dignity and the full development of the person through education, on the 
primacy of reason, on the rule of law, equality, and solidarity.  While many of 
these elements are also found in other cultures, their combination into a 
framework for life began in 18th century Western Europe and from there spread 
to North America and then the world.
                   The Enlightenment set the foundations of international law 
as well as the basic principles of human rights. Today, a sophisticated 
contemporary cosmopolitan ethos builds on the Enlightenment tradition but 
places its emphasis on the way in which local, national, regional, and global 
levels of governance are explicitly coordinated in the development of a world 
                   A world citizen cosmopolitan approach is closely linked to 
the way Stephen Krasner defined an international regime composed of a set of 
“implicit or explicit principles, norms, rules, and decision-making procedures 
around which actors’ expectations converge in a given area of international 
(See S. Krasner International Regimes (1983)
                   Since specific problems facing actors in the field of world 
politics are of an increasingly global nature and since the solutions to them 
call for both global vision and global cooperation, the relation between the 
framework provided by the cosmopolitan ethos and other approaches to world 
politics such as the “realist school”, the “institutionalist school” and the 
“Marxist school” needs to be worked out.
                   In order to facilitate an understanding of the 
cosmopolitan-world citizen approach and to highlight the increasing use of the 
term, I list a number of recent books with the term cosmopolitan in the title 
as well as in the content.  The term is even more widely used in the title of 
journal articles, but I limit myself to recent book to keep the bibliography to 
useful proportions.  Happy Reading!
