Module overview

This module provides an introduction to recent debates within international political theory on the

issue of global justice. It addresses questions such as: What obligations do individuals have to those

affected by poverty or ecological degradation on the global scale? From where do these obligations

derive? How should these obligations be balanced with any obligations to fellow nationals? What

would global justice look like? How demanding is it, and how might we achieve it?
