Summary

Although there is excellent work being done on ethics/normative theory and international relations and on gender/feminist theory and international relations, very little is available that seeks, explicitly, to integrate the two fields. Moreover, while feminist ethics, which explore the theory of care and noncontractual values such as trust and responsibility, are increasingly linked to political theory, there appears to be a reluctance to relate this moral theory to the specific questions of international or global political theory.In Globalizing Care, Fiona Robinson successfully weaves feminist theory and ethics with international relations. By bringing in the important contributions of feminist moral and political theorists, contributions that are notably absent from most of the important work in this field, Robinson broadens the debate on normative theory in international relations. This text will be essential reading for students and scholars of gender or feminist studies, international relations, philosophy, and political theory and of special interest to scholars of feminist, moral, and political philosophy.
