Justice is no mere abstraction. Finding justice and doing justice is a continuous
human task. It is the activity which in any society gives politics and the law their
purpose. The activity has both a material and a discursive dimension. It has to do
with what we are, what we do and what we say. What we are and do is materially
real. How we relate to others is discursively real, a matter of communicated
explanations via words. The struggle for justice is about how we explain the basis
of a good and proper relationship between ourselves and others.
Environmental and Natural Resource Economics takes a policy-oriented approach, introducing economic theory in the context of debates and empirical work from the field. Readers will gain a global perspective of both environmental and natural resource economics.
Can justice be extended to the global sphere,and if so, where do we f nd universally applicable principles of justice? Is it possible to reconcile the support of internationally recognized standards of human rights and justice with respect for local cultures? What are the limitations of the secular state and human rights institutions in ensuring the rights of various communities? How have conceptions of citizenship and the rights and identities of migrants changed
in the last century? Does the confession of violent acts necessarily contribute to reconciliation in post-conf ict societies?...
Reproductive rights advocates have been put in a particularly challenging position because
public debate about ART has been dominated by abortion politics. The Religious Right has
succeeded in centralizing the discussion on the moral status of the embryo, obscuring a broader
set of issues. Put in a defensive position, the reproductive rights movement has, until recently,
not had the opportunity to grapple internally with the complexities of ART use, and has tended to
fall back on traditional models of individual autonomy and choice.
With increasing numbers of U.S.
It is often lamented that academics, activists and practitioners engaged in corporate accountability
and improving labour standards do not jointly reflect upon the subject of their work enough.
Academics talk to practitioners when they want information and practitioners don’t often have
the time to step back and reflect upon the efficacy of their strategies, except in planning meetings.
This book arose out of a workshop held in December 2007 which aimed at creating a new space
for reflection and collaboration.
Missing the Target researchers consistently heard of the need for global
actors to coordinate their efforts much more closely in the countries
where they work. The Interagency Task Team on Children and HIV
and AIDS (IATT)
, led by UNICEF and composed of representatives
from UNAIDS co-sponsors, donors, NGOs, academic institutions and
other organisations, is charged with helping coordinate policy and
programming on the country and global level.
The globalization of human rights implies, too, the globalization of human responsibilities.
For individual human rights holders, there is the responsibility to act in ways that show
appropriate respect for the rights of fellow humans wherever they are located in the
global community of rights.
Examining specific problems—notably AIDS (Chap. 182), but also tuberculosis (TB, Chap. 158), malaria (Chap. 203), severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS; Chap. 179), and key noncommunicable diseases—helps to sharpen the discussion of barriers to prevention, diagnosis, and care as well as means of overcoming them. We next discuss global health equity, drawing on notions of social justice that once were central to international public health but have fallen out of favor over the past several decades. ...
Americans have always cherished our privacy. From the birth of our republic, we assured ourselves protection against unlawful intrusion into our homes and our personal papers. At the same time, we set up a postal system to enable citizens all over the new nation to engage in commerce and political discourse. Soon after, Congress made it a crime to invade the privacy of the mails. And later we extended privacy protections to new modes of communications such as the telephone, the computer, and eventually email.
