Description

Do people in more affluent countries have a moral obligation to alleviate poverty and social inequalities in other parts of the world? Can the principles of social justice be extended to every corner of the globe? In this lecture, Dr. Agartan will revisit some of the contemporary debates on the possibility and desirability of "Global Social Justice", and discuss how these debates could inform teaching and research that aim to build a more just world.
