Global Justice
0.5 Credit

This course explores theoretical understandings of global justice as applied to contemporary social issues. It investigates cultural constructs of freedom and obligation, the self in/and community. What are the cultural and philosophical justifications for excluding, or engaging, the stranger? The other? The poor? Ethical and methodological questions play a critical role in the deliberations with the ultimate aim of bringing inquiry to questions of action.
