Cosmopolitanism and Global Citizenship

I’m very interested in theories of cosmopolitanism (or global citizenship) and in particular the question of how to motivate people to take action on the basis of cosmopolitan ethical duties toward other humans. I’ve written about this in the context of Canadian development assistance, university-based study-abroad programs, and an article in-progress on the use of guilt-inducing strategies in approaches to cosmopolitan ethics that emphasize the ways in which citizen/consumers in the global North are implicated in human rights violations and ultimately the deaths of people in the global South.
