Never before has the need for a universalistic notion of international or global justice been more acutely felt and yet at the same time perceived as an elusive chimaera. On the one hand, the long awaited freeing of international politics from the strictures of the post-Yalta bipolar order, the ever accelerating process of globalization, and the intensification of migratory flows have all increased the sense of urgency associated with our aspiration to a transculturally shareable notion of justice. On the other hand, the effects of the linguistic turn have contributed to a growing awareness of the constitutive role of lifeforms and vocabularies vis-à-vis our conceptions of justice.
