Current controversies over globalization take place against a background of severe poverty in much of the world, extreme economic inequalities between rich and poor countries, and profound international effects of domestic policies. To understand these controversies, we must engage both normative and social scientific questions. This interdisciplinary course on global justice therefore integrates approaches from political philosophy and political economy. It is co-taught by faculty from the departments of philosophy and economics. Foundations of development economics and theories of global justice are introduced and applied to specific issues such as immigration, free trade, child labor, and sweatshops.

Prerequisites: No prior knowledge of economics or philosophy is required.
Course Requirements: three short (5-7 page) argumentative papers; final exam; participation in discussion section.
Class Format: Two hours lecture (with some brief discussion); two hours discussion.
