Global Ethics and Environment

By Nicholas Low | Go to book overview

market failures, and so long as there are profitable areas of capital investment. The governments of nation states have to follow the rules of competition and not the necessities of sustainability, unless they are forced to change their attitudes by social subjects. This is a strong reason for the rules of democratic participation and for the necessity to take substantial interests into deliberations on formal procedures. The integration of social subjects into a system of global governance could be interpreted as a first step to some future kind of international regulation which overcomes the fallacies of globalization on the one hand and respects the hard natural constraints of the environmental space on the other hand.
