What is Global Justice?

Knowledge by the Slice

A political philosopher, Tan specializes in problems of global justice, nationalism, value pluralism, equality, and human rights. In his latest book Justice, Institutions, and Luck, he identifies what is at stake and argues that our obligation to seek fair distribution of goods is global in scope.
