Kok-Chor Tan addresses three key questions in egalitarian distributive justice: Where does distributive equality matter?; Why does it matter?; And among whom does it matter? He argues for an institutional site for egalitarian justice, and suggests that the mitigation of arbitrariness or luck is the basis for distributive commitments. He also argues that distributive obligations are global in scope, applying between individuals across borders. Tan's objectives are tripartite: to clarify the basis of an institutional approach to justice; to establish luck egalitarianism as an account of the ground of equality; and to realize the global nature of egalitarian justice. The outcome is 'institutional luck egalitarianism'―a new cosmopolitan position on distributive justice.

Review:

Tan's book is exceptionally clear, thoughtful, and innovative, and it should not be ignored by anyone interested in egalitarianism and distributive justice more generally. (Jonathan Quong, Ethics)

The book engages with three important questions, and deals with them in great detail and with admirable even-handedness. (Chris Armstrong, Social Theory and Practice)

...offers one of the most systematic and nuanced treatments to date of a global luck egalitarian approach, and it adds important clarity to the ongoing dialogue about just how global distributive justice can and should be conceived. Further, Tan's writing is a model of both precision and accessibility. He is adept at showing what is at stake in major debates and at identifying and leading the reader through important positions in them. This book would make an excellent teaching tool. (Luis Cabrera, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
