Course content

The world today appears in a state of moral flux.

The inequalities and injustices of the current global system are increasingly being contested around the world, but it is not yet clear which direction global politics might head this century. Learn the ethical norms governing today’s global politics of trade, migration, health, sustainable development, conflict, and global security challenges and the alternatives being proposed. By familiarizing you with diverse theoretical perspectives on the issues, this course will enable you better understand how today’s global politics was ethically conceived and what its future governing norms might resemble.
