In this course we will examine alternative conceptions of global justice including the capabilities approach and cosmopolitan and luck egalitarian accounts. We will consider critiques of these conceptions of justice including libertarian and nationalist views. We will also explore accounts of solidarity and examine the relationship between solidarity and global justice. At times we will focus on global health justice in order to better understand alternative approaches.
