GARRETA LECLERCQ, Mariano. Liberalismo político: justificación pública dentro y fuera de las fronteras de una democracia constitucional. Eidos [online]. 2012, n.17, pp.192-223. ISSN 1692-8857.

The purpose of the following article is to sustain the view that accepting the basic notions of political liberalism does not necessarily lead to a minimalistic concept of global justice as that developed by John Rawls in The Law of Peoples. In opposition to his explicit opinion, I shall hold that -within the global political field- contemporary liberal democracies can publicly hold egalitarian ideals and a robust conception of human rights in order to justify some of the features of their foreign policy. I shall try to demonstrate that this is not incompatible with the required tolerance and respect toward nations that conspicuously embrace ways of life and belief systems incompatible with some of the most relevant liberal values.

Keywords : Political liberalism; coercion; global justice; public justification.
