This study investigates the thinking of European authors, from Vitoria to Kant, about political justice, the global community, and international hospitality as one special form of interaction among individuals of divergent societies, political communities, and cultures. In response to the requirements of a globalized international community, some philosophers - often influenced by Rawls - have constructed theories of political justice distinct from utilitarian approaches, legal positivism, or historicist contexualization - however, this search for a universal and globally applicable moral standard is often rejected as naive and potentially dangerous. In certain cases, the insistence of state sovereignty and communal integrity is mistaken if basic human rights are involved. Apart from attempting the delinneate basic human rights and the state's liberty to specify them, this text also considers the global commonwealth and issues of community and morality that arise when issues of hospitality and belonging are considered.
