Abstract or Description

This article explores the Pinochet case, widely heralded as a landmark, as a case of ‘intermestic’ human rights that raises difficult normative and empirical questions concerning cosmopolitan justice. The article is a contribution to the sociology of human rights from the perspective of methodological cosmopolitanism, developing conceptual tools and methods to study intermestic human rights in terms of the inter-relations between cosmopolitanising state institutions and cultural norms. The argument is made that in order to understand issues of cosmopolitan justice, sociologists must give more consideration to political culture.
