ABSTRACT

This study aims to extend the idea of publicness discussed in the domestic dimension to the global dimension. In general, publicness is considered significantly as a public value that a society should pursue in order to ensure the public interest. In the era of globalization, we need to discuss publicness in a global society considering the public interest beyond the boundaries of the states. This study explores the meaning and components(agency, interest, accessibility) of the publicness in the domestic and global society based on Benn & Gaus(1983)’s approach of publicness, and analyzes United Nations(UN) and Korean Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) in terms of global publicness. In this study, ‘Global publicness’ means that the various agents in public and private sectors make decisions and act to ensure the substantive and procedural accessibility to the human right of all members in the global society. Also, this study shows some challenges of the SDGs to solve global problems and ensure the interest of global society through global cooperation beyond the national boundaries. In order to cope with the limitations, it is necessary to systematically consider multi-level interests in the global society and improve accessibility to activities, interaction, and information in the SDGs. The ‘Global Publicness’ approach can help the global society find ways to address global issues such as climate change, poverty, nuclear security and protectionism facing the world today.
