This book offers a unique reconceptualization of cosmopolitanism. It examines several themes that inform politics in a globalized era, including global governance, international law, citizenship, constitutionalism, community, domesticity, territory, sovereignty, and nationalism. The volume explores the specific philosophical and institutional challenges in constructing a cosmopolitan political community beyond the nation state. It reorients and decolonizes the boundaries of `cosmopolitanism' and questions the contemporary discourse to posit inclusive alternatives. Presenting rich and diverse perspectives from across the world, the volume will interest scholars and students of politics and international relations, political theory, public policy, ethics, and philosophy.

`This unusual volume brings together contributions by some of the most well-known intellectuals writing on the theme of cosmopolitanism into a tension-ridden conversation with perspectives that foreground different experiences from the global south.' - Aditya Nigam, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, New Delhi, India
`Re-inducting structure and agency into the debate on the nature and course of globalization, the authors highlight the hiatus between slogans of global justice and global realities and examine ways to bridge this gap through appropriate and urgent action. This elegantly written book should be a constant companion of all students of public policy and democracy in the global age.' - Subrata K. Mitra, South Asia Institute, Heidelberg University, Germany
