Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the state and citizen of Denmark in the context of natural law as a public good. It discusses the views of different authors about the citizen of Denmark. Cicero bases the republic on two concepts: first, consensus regarding the law, iuris consensus; second, a common utility, utilitatis communio. In principle is accessible to all and thus non-discriminatory. Global public goods can be a clean environment, e.g. clean air and oceans, open and integrated market economies, financial stability, and battling infectious disease. The chapter also discusses that the fundamental starting point for human rights is the relationship between the individual and the state, between citizen and society, between individual interests and freedoms and collective needs. Finally, it looks at the ways individual states synergize at the regional and international level, including whether or not global public goods can be procured at all without some sort of global governance.
