Dual moral obligations and international cooperation against global catastrophic risks | Jenny Xiao

The fight against global catastrophic risks (GCRs) requires international cooperation, yet it is often challenging to foster genuine collaboration among different countries. Jenny Xiao, a PhD student at Columbia University, reconceptualizes international cooperation decisions as a tradeoff between “dual moral obligations” towards the nation and humanity as a whole. How countries think about this tradeoff shapes their willingness to contribute to collective efforts against GCRs.
