Politics and International Relations (PIR): Research


Just World Institute

The Institute was founded in 2008 to foster interdisciplinary research into the global challenges facing the international order, with particular attention to issues of ethics and justice. Our research addresses three overlapping thematic areas of global justice: questions of justice in contexts of conflict and peace; issues of poverty and wealth in the sphere of global economic cooperation and competition; questions of justice in mitigating and adapting to change in the global environment, including climate change. We are especially concerned to understand the interconnections between these three areas.
