What is poverty and how is it measured?
What are the causes of poverty?
Do wealthy individuals have a moral duty to reduce global poverty?
Should aid go to those who are most in need, or to those who are easiest to help?
Is it morally wrong to buy from sweatshops?
Is it morally good to provide micro-finance?
Featuring case studies throughout, this textbook is essential reading for students studying global ethics or global poverty who want an understanding of the moral issues that arise from vast inequalities of wealth and power in a highly interconnected world.
Global Violence: Ethical and Political Issuesprovides readers with the analytical tools to better understand the suppositions that underlie the debates about such questions, as well as advances its own reasoned and informed ethical analyses of these topics. The book engages different normative approaches from the fields of ethics, political theory, and international relations and uses them to examine a set of case studies on the subjects of inter-state and civil war, nuclear weapons, terrorism, torture and genocide.
The argument is expressed in precise analytical terms, but the main exposition is free of mathematics and technical jargon and is designed for the interested layman as well as the economist.
