Global Justice: Trade & Refugees - an open seminar

This seminar will explore questions that are central to a just global community. How should we treat refugees who come to our shores? And how should we engage in trade relations with other states?

We will discuss two recent publications: The Ethics and Practice of Refugee Repatriation by Mollie Gerver and Trade Justice by Dr James Christensen. This seminar will provide excellent insight for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as academic members of staff wishing to further their understanding of the issues faced by the global community today.

This is an open seminar, you will need to register your place to ensure you don't miss out!
