The paper aims to explain how the differences in the understanding of international order by Kant and Hegel can be traced back to their conceptions of the concrete realization of freedom. Although both of them emphasize the realization of freedom as the goal of establishing a political system, their conceptions of a political order differ substantially. While Kant's concept of right focuses on the compatibility between external freedom of rational agents, Hegel's philosophy of right considers the recognition by others as a necessary condition for the realization of individual freedom in different levels of sociopolitical structure. The paper explains that Kant's conception of world government and perpetual peace should be understood as a regulative idea that guides the development of international relations. However, Hegel considers Kant's idea of world government as an unrealizable goal, since it lacks the possibility of recognition by an external agent. The comparison between Kant's and Hegel's conceptions provides us with an important conceptual lens to better understand the development of international politics in the contemporary world.
