This project brings together an international group of researchers from different disciplines (philosophy, psychology, sociology, political sciences, international relations, history, law, cultural studies, literature) who have for several years been conducting  research on issues of cosmopolitanism in its personal, social, cultural, political and legal dimension.

Goal 10: Reduce inequality within and among countries;

Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts; 

Goal 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels;
