The SAGE Library of International Relations brings together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in a number of key areas of research and inquiry in International Relations. Each multi-volume set represents a collection of the essential published works collated from the foremost publications in the field by an editor or editorial team of renowned international stature. They also include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the discipline's past, present and likely future. This series is designed to be a 'gold standard' for university libraries throughout the world with an interest in International Relations. Actors in international politics need to navigate a host of ethical challenges when deciding how to act in a certain context. They are confronted by the question: 'What, from an ethical point of view, ought I to do?' with regard to a wide range of issues including the conduct of war, the just distribution of aid and trade, human rights, the care of the global environment, the rights of asylum seekers and refugees, genocide, money-laundering, global terror and many others. This collection looks at classical and seminal research in the field with the broad framework of the moral standing of states; the moral standing of non-state actors; and the ethics of international relations. Volume One: The Society of States Volume Two: Global Civil Society: Non-State Actors in World Politics Volume Three: The Changing Constitution of Global Politics Volume Four: Ethics and Foreign Policy
