Description

The Ethics of Development: An Introduction systematically and comprehensively examines the ethical issues surrounding the concept of development. Addressing important questions such as: What does development mean? Is there a human right to development? If we aim for sustainable development in an age of global climate change, should developed nations sacrifice economic growth for the sake of allowing developing countries to catch up? Should Eradication of Poverty or Diminution of Radical Inequality be the Principal Focus of Developmental Policy? What are the macro-economic theories of development? And how have they informed development policy? How does development work in practice? Featuring case studies throughout this textbook provides a philosophical introduction to an incredibly topical issue studied by students within the fields of applied ethics, global justice, economics, politics, sociology and public policy.
