|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject begins with an analysis of recent attempts to justify the claim that duties of justice apply to the world as a whole. This cosmopolitan point of view is contrasted with nationalist positions which seek to limit duties of distributive justice to obligations shared by national compatriots. In the second half of the course we use major theories of global justice to engage with several pressing international problems including: immigration, armed intervention, international development and national self-determination.
|Assessment:||A 5000 word research essay 100% (due in the final week of semester).|
