CORTES RODAS, Francisco. La soberanía de los Estados modernos y el reto de la realización de los Derechos Humanos . Eidos [online]. 2012, n.17, pp.92-113. ISSN 1692-8857.

This article is focused on the consideration and critique of some of the ideas exposed by the contemporary reflection on the normative models for a new international order. First, it discuses Rawls argumentative strategies, in which it is exposed the cosmopolitan idea of the transformation of the world order, beginning from the global economic justice requirement. Second, it demonstrates that the approach of Pogge's global justice is insufficient because although he formulates a global redistributive proposal, it does not touch the problem concerning the transformation of the relational power system within the current capitalist order. Lastly, it presents Cristina Lafont's proposal for a human rights pluralist model, and considers, critically, her perspective for a regulatory-oriented world economic politics, within the new discourse on human rights.

Keywords : Global justice; human rights; state sovereignty; democracy.
