Canadians take pride in being good citizens of the world, yet our failure to meet global commitments raises questions. Do Canadians need to transcend national loyalties to become full global citizens? Is the idea of rooted cosmopolitanism simply a myth that encourages complacency about Canada’s place in the world? This volume assesses rooted cosmopolitanism both in theory and practice. By exploring how Canadians are accommodating “the world” in areas such as multiculturalism, climate change, and humanitarian intervention, the contributors test the possibility of reconciling national allegiances with commitments to human rights, global justice, and international law.
