Gender and Global Justice

Debates surrounding global justice challenge us to question our obligations toward people around the world. This includes: the moral status of individuals, states and peoples; theories of human rights; the ethics of the use of force; and global inequality, poverty and distributive justice. This course will use concepts in global justice to explore the way gender norms influence women's and men's ability to access legal rights and political freedoms, to challenge legal norms and to improve social welfare.

Prerequisites
P: cse in women's studies.
