What is fair trade? Do we have obligations to people yet unborn? Is terrorism ever justified? Do we have moral duties to people in other countries?

These and other questions are answered in the Encyclopedia of Global Justice (Springer 2011) now available through the library catalogue. The encyclopedia describes terminology and concepts around the markedly unequal division of the world’s resources using both empirical research and theoretical argumentation from international law, economics, philosophy, political science and environmental science. Although the interface of the encyclopedia has some deficiencies, such as the absence of an index and a general bibliography, this reference work provides a useful entry to the complex issues of today.
