Cosmopolitanism: Cosmopolitanism in political theory is the view that all human beings are members of a single community, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, or religion. Cosmopolitians believe that we have moral obligations to all human beings, not just our own compatriots, and that we should work to create a more just and equitable world for all.

G.W.F. Hegel on Cosmopolitanism - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 339
Cosmopolitanism/Hegel/Höffe: Even in the modest form represented by Kant, Hegel vehemently rejects the idea of a global rule of law.
, >Peace/Kant.
Even a League of Nations, which leaves the individual states their full right of existence and self-determination, but nevertheless continues in the form of a world civil right in a global rule of law, goes decidedly too far for Hegel. According to his argument directed against Kant, there is no public authority; between states there can at most be arbitrators and mediators.
Even if, according to Kant's idea of eternal peace, a confederation of states were to come into being, it would be bound to the unanimous consent of all states, which in turn would remain subject to contingencies. >War/Hegel, >Law of nations/Hegel, >History/Hegel, >World history/Hegel.

League of Nations: In Hegel's time there were neither renunciations of sovereignty nor were they foreseeable for the near future.
