The conclusion summarizes the main findings of the book, in particular with regard to the role of activist political theory and the relevance of avant-garde agency. After examining a number of objections to the idea the avant-garde, it concludes by reasserting the role of avant-garde agents for global justice and, more generally, for an appropriate account of the relation between normative principles and political agency.
