The Hall Center for the Humanities Visiting Interdisciplinary Scholars Program presents a series of Faculty Workshops co-sponsored by the Philosophy Department. The workshop will emphasize four contemporary thinkers, each one of whom will be present to discuss their work on justice in the international order with the workshop participants.

This workshop will focus on economic justice and developing nations.

Henry Shue, Professor of Ethics and Public Life at Cornell University, 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. In the workshop, we will focus on his recent articles concerning justice and developing nations.

There are suggested readings for each session.
Pre-registration is required; the deadline is December 20. Contact the Hall Center for more information.
