Can we talk about 'the people' as an agent with its own morally
important integrity? How should we understand ownership of public
property by 'the people'? Nili develops philosophical answers to
both of these questions, arguing that we should see the core
project of a liberal legal system - realizing equal rights - as an
identity-grounding project of the sovereign people, and thus as
essential to the people's integrity. He also suggests that there
are proprietary claims that are intertwined in the sovereign
people's moral power to create property rights through the legal
system. The practical value of these ideas is illustrated through a
variety of real-world policy problems, ranging from the domestic
and international dimensions of corruption and abuse of power,
through transitional justice issues, to the ethnic and religious
divides that threaten liberal democracy. This book will appeal to
political theorists as well as readers in public policy, area
studies, law, and across the social sciences.
