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 
“cosmopolitan”. In a world of growing interdependence, cosmopolitanism deals 
primarily with a specific range of issues: world security, international 
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 
Europeand from there spread to North 
Americaand then the 
                   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 
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!
