Reparative arguments vs. egalitarian arguments
Objection: reparative arguments are redundant
Tans response: it is no objection to reparative arguments for
justice if the relevant duties are over determined
Rather redundant obligations are more likely to be fulfilled
o We have more reasons to fulfill them
Reasons to support reparative justice for colonialism:
Argument from motivation: reparative speaks more directly to
actual moral motivations
Argument from trust: at least symbolic amends for past injustice
may be necessary to generate trust and respect
Arguments from reparation may fill in gaps where egalitarian
global justice arguments fail/are weak
Obligation made more perfect
Imperfect obligations: charity
o We all have these but we do not have a concrete def of
how and when to fulfill them
Promise keeping parent child obligations
Reparative arguments help make duties of global justice
more perfect
o Who is owed reparations?
o Who owes the duty of reparation?
o What is the content of the duty?
To whom? From whom?
