The Values Institute and the Institute for Law and Philosophy are proud to co-sponsor a Conference on Global Justice and Global Trade

Do principles of social justice that apply within each country also apply among nations on a global scale? If so, what are these principles? If not, what special principles of justice apply to nation states in their dealings with each other and to individuals around the globe just in virtue of their common humanity? Recent writings on justice have generated a rich, impressive and somewhat chaotic array of answers to these questions. This conference aims to explore these issues with a focus on economic trade. What is fair trade? What do individuals and countries engaged in global trade owe one another? Can we develop a plausible characterization of a just global economic order? Or are these questions misplaced or misguided? How should we frame the inquiry?

This conference will take place on April 24th and 25th, 2015, in the Faculty Reading Room of Warren Hall.

Confirmed participants include:

  • Aaron James, University of California, Irvine
  • Fernando Teson, Florida State University
  • Helen De Bres, Wellesley College
  • Horacio Spector, USD
  • Mathias Risse, Harvard Kennedy School
  • Thomas Christiano, University of Arizona
