Abstract

This presentation is a commentary on the processes of constitution and implementation of the postwar global normative order.  It is based on the interventions of four African intellectuals pertaining to an inci-pient ‘order of justification’ for postcolonial – and therefore global – justice, freedom, and democracy. These individuals predicted with near-atomic accuracy the coming dysfunctions and crises of governance of the postwar liberal international order. Secondly, they envisaged an alternative ‘universal’ moral (or normative) order from multiple orders of justification and diverse political and moral concerns. Thirdly, they claimed the likes of Hugo, Voltaire, Kant, Diderot, and Rousseau as their own ‘inheritance’ in equal measure with African traditions in order to legitimize their own claims to the world. The path that they outlined is one to which I subscribe and that I wish to explore further.
