Those who, through pillage and plunder, deprive others of their livelihood violate negative duties interactionally, and those who collaborate in the imposition of an institutional order under which, foreseeably and avoidably, many cannot meet their basic needs are violating negative duties of the institutional kind. Even conservatives and libertarians, who often present themselves as rejecting subsistence rights altogether, recognize such cases. In particular, they classify as human-rights-violating some institutional arrangements that foreseeably and avoidably produce lifethreatening poverty – the feudal systems of France’s Ancien Régime or tsarist Russia, for instance, or Stalin’s economic policies during 30 The Human Rights of the Global Poor 1930–3, which caused some 7–10 million famine deaths among peasants, mostly in the Ukraine, whom he considered hostile to his regime.

The same human right is violated institutionally by those who make an uncompensated contribution to the imposition of social institutions that foreseeably give rise to substantially more torture than would be avoidable through a better institutional design. 33 Citizens often feel that they are not implicated in any human-rights violations committed by their country’s military or security officials or by its politicians. This may be true when such violations are individual cases that cannot reasonably be avoided through appropriate institutional protections.

But such criteria will coincide in their emphasis on the question of how well our global institutional order is doing, compared to its feasible and reachable alternatives, in regard to the fundamental human interests that matter from a moral point of view. Extending institutional moral analysis beyond the state, this question focuses attention on how today’s massive incidence of violence and severe poverty, and the huge excesses of mortality and morbidity they cause, might be avoided not merely through better government behavior, domestically and internationally, but also, and much more effectively, through global institutional reforms that would, among other things, elevate such government behavior by modifying the options governments have and the incentives they face.
