Global justice and the problem of immigration
Modern legal philosophy provides us with two main types of global justice theories. Distributive or egalitarian theories claim that justice requires striving to achieve the global equality from us not only in legal but also economic dimension. On the other hand, there are many theories focusing on providing and keeping only „minimal standard” (i.e. human rights) and questioning the global equality as an ideal. In the article I investigate which type of theories describes contemporary international relations in the most accurate way (claiming that „minimal standard” theory does it) and I also wonder which type is more legitimate. In my opinion, considerations devoted to the question of global justice give us a well-established background for further studies on immigration policy, especially in the context of recent EU frontiers incidents.
