The transnational struggle for economic justice

Aktivitet: Deltagit i eller arrangerat evenemangDeltagit i workshop/ seminarium/ kurs

Beskrivning

Economic inequality has reached levels where the eight richest persons own as much as half of the world population. Global supply chains are a fragmented, diffuse and dynamic way of organizing production in the world economy that seem to defy accountability efforts. Social and economic rights, still not used to their full potential, could construct a safety net to protect against economic shocks and share prosperity. There are new issues, new objects of regulation, and even the history of human rights is changing right before our eyes. How should we make sense of these developments from a human rights perspective? What methodological options are there to further transnational human rights research? The panelists bring insights from different academic disciplines and in a series of “Öresund dialogues” among Lund- and Denmark-based scholars.
