  • Resumen
    • For all the continuing scholarly interest in cosmopolitanism and the ever-widening public discourses regarding global citizenship, these ideas continue to face an uphill climb in everyday political and social life. This paper first takes stock of the impediments keeping cosmopolitan ideas in the relative margins, particularly in Europe and North America. I examine resistance to cosmopolitanism among influential segments of the population - especially in a climate of acute economic anxiety - shortcomings within governing institutions, and deficiencies in academic debates that have kept cosmopolitanism, at times, all too detached from issues expressly tied to global governance. Then the paper turns to other parts of the world and points to some of the ways that cosmopolitanism and its related concepts have been gradually gaining currency and credibility across the ´global south´, especially in countries recently undergoing democratic transitions.
