Cosmopolitan ideas in the current international society.- Isabel Gacho Carmona

The present work tries to understand the concept of cosmopolitanism from its origin paying special attention to the cosmopolitan humanism of Immanuel Kant and the reformulation of his thesis through the prism of the present situation of Jürgen Habermas. It then analyses the current global governance structures from this perspective in order not only to offer criticism of the system from cosmopolitanism, but to try to conclude what practical influences have or have not had this doctrine in the existing world power structures and, therefore, in the defence of human rights.
