Worldwide suffering caused by large-scale famine as well as poverty, human rights violations, military interventions or environmental degradation have a global dimension, because those responsible are not only individuals, but also states and international institutions. Recently, what some have perceived as global injustices related to military interventions and economic exploitation seem to motivate terrorist and piracy attacks that cause indiscriminate suffering. Having gained an unprecedented urgency, the topic of global justice has received increasingly public and academic attention, and has lately become a central issue in moral and political philosophy. Our conference seeks to be a forum for discussing the most important theories of global justice, their central concepts and constraints.
The conference will be held at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Bucharest, and is organized by The Center for the Study of Rationality and Beliefs.
The conference programme is available on this page.
