This course seeks to introduce students to the ethical aspects of some major problems in global governance, with a special focus on human rights. In addition to human rights, topics include foundations of ethical theory, intervention, climate change, immigration and trade. Background readings come mostly from moral philosophical, political theory and political science. Each session pays special attention to a particular policy area in the international domain and thereby combines philosophical inquiry with applied questions. The course does not have any formal prerequisites.

Not offered in 2015-16.
