Globalising Justice

Wednesday 20 March, 6.30pm
Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE

Campaigners for social justice ordinarily bemoan globalisation, fearing that it will undo all their hard-won gains. In a lecture on Globalising Justice, Professor Robert Goodin will argue that instead, they should embrace it as an opportunity for pursuing justice on a broader scale as principles of justice have global scope and the globalised political economy offers several good mechanisms for pursuing them.

Professor Robert Goodin will be speaking on Globalising Justice as part of the Miliband Lectures on Global Economic Governance series on Wednesday 20 March at LSE.

Robert Goodin is Professor of Social and Political Theory and of Philosophy at the Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University. Founding editor of The Journal of Political Philosophy, Goodin is the author of seminal books in the field of political theory, public policy and applied ethics.

Professor David Held will chair the event, which is free and open to all. No ticket is required.
