The notion of moral community is extended to the global level. At this level universal principles are at work, which request us to prevent or mitigate evil when we have the capacity to do so. The ultimate sovereign of the global community is humanity, one of the defining principles of humanitarian action (Charvet 1997). The moral imperative to assist and intervene is expressed in a new language of humanitarianism, emphasising cosmopolitanism, common humanity and the responsibility to protect (R2P) and focusing on the victim’s point of view (Benhabib 2009).
