Inhoud

In recent decades, national borders have become less important. Transnational networks have emerged that take little or no account of the traditional territorial boundaries of nation states. This is a positive development for people who have the resources and capabilities to use these networks. However, a large part of the world population is cut off from these global networks and their benefits. Many people are well aware of structural injustice and better alternatives, but do not have the opportunity to improve their situation. Against this background, the question arises what ‘justice’ means in a globalized world. To what extent can we realize ideals such as freedom, equality, solidarity and sustainability in a world in which people are increasingly dependent on each other? Are there principles of global justice? And if so, who has the duty to realize these principles and which international structures do we need to guarantee them? This course provides an introduction to the field of global justice. It addresses questions as the above through a problem-based approach, delving into topics such as poverty, socio-economic inequality, human rights, terrorism, immigration, and climate justice.
