Global politics today is grappling with moral and epistemological questions arising out of the skewed distribution of power in the world. In this context, examinations of justice and equality are attended to with urgency in the contemporary cosmopolitan discourse that recasts the relationship between state and citizen within the framework of humanity. Cosmopolitanism addresses the loss of agency for the individual in the face of overwhelming state power, in the process engaging with the crisis of moral authority that the state as an agent faces today. As a redressal, cosmopolitanism offers the idea of cosmopolitan democracy that bridges the gap between those who take decisions and those who bear the consequences of these decisions. In this, cosmopolitanism demands and creates the discursive space for reinterpreting political community beyond the nation state.
