ABSTRACT
At what point does one reasonably concede that the "realities" of world politics require compromise from cherished principles or moral ends, and how does one know when an ethical limit has been reached'? Since social constructivist analyses of the development of moral norms explain how moral change occurs in world politics, that agenda should provide insightful leverage on the ethical question of "what to do." This article identifies contributions of a constructivist research agenda for theorizing moral limit and possibility in global political dilemmas.
