Learning Outcome

The course is divided methodologically in three segments to provide a broad view to the student of the major considerations and topics related to global justice. Part one (“On general considerations”) make up a theoretical baseline of the definition and methodology of Global Justice. Part two (“Major Themes on Global Justice”) defines and debates the selection of issues related to the course. We pay special attention to the issue from a European Union perspective. Part three deals with the discussion and elaboration of European proposals to implement global justice legal policies. The following questions will shape this inquiry and will orient the main goals:- What is justice? Why might it be global in character?- Are states necessary for the achievement of global justice?- What role can the European Union play in this topic?- Does the Global order harm the Poor?- Which is the national responsibility on Global Justice?- Is law enforcement alone enough to reduce human trafficking?- Can war be used as Punishment?
