Among its central topics are: defining the notions of  global ethics and global justice, dimensions of justice and the questions of universal standards of justice, moral disagreement and moral dialogue, agents of global justice, status justice and membership, restitutive and restorative justice in historical context and context of communities,  the role of reactive moral attitudes (shame, guilt)  in reconciliation, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, the role of intellectual humility and epistemic justice, and culture of fear and religious (in)tolerance. The core unifying theme of the entire book is the focus on justice (in its various forms) as one of the most significant ethical challenges of the contemporary world.
