According to several contemporary theorists of cosmopolitanism, the concept of sovereignty – enabling the political authority to be core and head of society – should be overcome. There-fore, juridical and political institutions are to be considered as mere instruments serving goods that count as desirable in specific collectives. The thesis of the paper is that liberty is always “social liberty”: the institutions enabling it are not to be added to a prepolitical liberty dimension, on the contrary they are what enables its realization. Such thesis is advanced to endorse the so-called “domestic analogy” in order to overcome anti-statist cosmopolitism objections to the idea that recognizing the equal supremacy of states is part and parcel of everyone rights to freedom respect.
