CoordinatorMr Sagar Sanyal
Substantial economic inequality occurs both within and across different societies. Can that be right? If states have an obligation to make their citizens more equal, how should we understand those obligations? What about the fact that 15% of the world's population who live in high-income countries have over 80% of the world's income? Over a third of the world's population lives below the poverty line. Are rich countries acting unjustly if they fail to send large amount of aid overseas, or restrict immigration? If so, how should we understand these injustices, and proposals for remedying them?
