Visiting Interdiscipliary Scholars Program presents a series of public lectures on Justice, Human Rights, and the International Order.

Henry Shue is professor of ethics and public life at Cornell University. He is primarily interested in ethical issues that arise in international affairs, especially issues about the foreign policy of the United States. He has worked on the relative priority of economic rights, the strength of obligations across national boundaries, the morality of nuclear deterrence, and the justice of international cooperation on the environment with special attention to developing nations. His book Basic Rights: Subsistence, Affluence, and US Foreign Policy (1980; 2nd ed.,1996) has been extremely influential, as has his work on issues involving developing nations.

Henry Shue is a Hall Center Visiting Interdisciplinary Scholar in Spring 2002.
