    • The article was written whilst I was in receipt of a Leverhulme Trust research grant to work on Kant's political philosophy. I gratefully acknowledge the Trust's generous support. Earlier versions of the article were presented at the Oxford conference on Global Justice (May 2008), as well as political theory and philosophy seminars at LSE, the University of Fribourg, the University of Stirling, and the University of Frankfurt. A very early version was given at the Perpetual Peace conference in Copenhagen (August 2005). My thanks to organizers and audiences of all these events. Many colleagues have read all or portions of successive drafts and have offered generous comments and advice throughout. My particular thanks to Sharon Byrd, Patrick Capps, Pavlos Eleftheriadis, Rainer Forst, Stefan Gosepath, Simon Hope, Joachim Hruschka, Kent Hurtig, Mogens Chrom Jacobsen, Bernd Ludwig, Pauline Kleingeld, Nico Krisch, Amanda Perreau-Saussine, Eiko Thielemann, Ines Valdes, Howard Williams, Lea Ypi, and Simone Zurbuchen. Finally, my thanks to the journal's two referees for their very helpful suggestions on how to improve the penultimate draft.
