October 11-12, 2013 | GLOTHRO Workshop on Responsibility and Obligations from Global Justice

Convenors
George Pavlakos (Antwerp/Glasgow) and Axel Gosseries (UCL)

Description
The workshop aims to expand and deepen key themes of the debate on ‘Globalisation and the Transformation of Legal Obligations’, which already forms the topic of the second panel of the stocktaking conference. It will endeavour to make fruitful for the legal debate on transnational human rights obligations the extremely rich philosophical debate on the obligations of global justice. It is expected that at the end of the project the scholars working within the various components of the project will come to share a common interdisciplinary perspective, which connects theory and practice.
