Do we have the same moral obligation to help people across the world, regardless of which country they live in? Are we bound by a global morality to help fellow humans, regardless of nationality, state or community?

The world is often an unjust place: every year, millions of people die from the effects of poverty, are forced to flee their homes to escape war, or lose their way of life due to environmental changes caused by climate change. On the other hand, many people do not face such hardships, and see the less fortunate as objects of charity, or do not even concern themselves with their worries. Nevertheless, our lives impact on theirs, for example when we buy certain clothes and food or travel abroad, so what do we owe them as a matter of justice?

This accessible textbook on Global Justice helps students to grapple with big questions surrounding justice, human rights and equality. Featuring chapters on topics such as Immigration, International Trade, War and Climate Change, this cutting-edge and comprehensive study helps to bring the demands of justice clearly into view.

Suitable for undergraduate and graduate students alike, this comprehensive textbook will be a valuable tool for anyone interested in the study of Global Justice.
