ESSAYS

Borders of Class: Migration and Citizenship in the Capitalist State
Lea Ypi
Ypi defends the relevance of social class in migration debates, arguing that borders have always been (and will continue to be) open for some and closed for others.

The Social Cost of International Investment Agreements: The Case of Cigarette Packaging
Jennifer L. Tobin
Tobin argues that international investment agreements impinge on states' domestic regulatory sovereignty in unforeseen ways, and that these hidden social costs are normatively problematic.

Extractivism, Gender, and Disease: An Intersectional Approach to Inequalities
Cristina Cielo and Lisset Coba
The authors draw on the case of the refinery city Esmeraldas, Ecuador, to show how extractive economies exacerbate the "illness-poverty trap" as well as gendered disparities.

FEATURES

Threats and Coercive Diplomacy: An Ethical Analysis [Full text]
Gregory M. Reichberg and Henrik Syse
Threats of armed force are frequently employed in international affairs, yet they have received little ethical scrutiny in their own right. This article addresses that deficit by examining how threats, taken as a speech act, require distinctive moral assessment.

Temporary Labor Migration within the EU as Structural Injustice
Alasia Nuti
Temporary labor migration (TLM) constitutes a significant trend of migration movements within the EU, yet it has received scant attention in normative migration debates. By drawing on Iris Marion Young's conception of structural injustice, this paper analyzes the injustice of TLM within the EU.

REVIEW ESSAYS

The Irony of Just War
Cian O'Driscoll
O'Driscoll examines a series of benchmark books on the ethics of war published over the past year. All three grapple with the hard facts of modern violent conflict, and they all skillfully bring diverse traditions of just war thinking into conversation with one another.

Toward a Global Water Ethic: Learning from Indigenous Communities
Emma S. Norman
Norman draws on three important new contributions to the water governance literature to suggest that insights from indigenous communities' more holistic and long-term relationship with water could help advance the adoption of a new global water ethic.
