PHI6009 Global Justice
What are the demands of justice at the global level? In this course we will start by looking at debates about the nature of global justice, such as that concerning whether there exist any principles of egalitarian justice with global scope. We will then turn to various questions of justice that arise at the global level, potentially including: how jurisdiction over territory might be justified; whether states have a right to exclude would-be immigrants; how to understand the wrong of colonialism; whether reparations are owed for past international injustices; and how to identify responsibilities for combatting global injustice.
This module is also available to undergraduates as PHI350.
If there are three or more postgraduates taking the module, a separate seminar will be scheduled for them.
