Welcome

Initiatives in Global Justice hosts lectures, study groups, workshops, and conferences that explore the ethical and socio-political dimensions of urgent problems that are transnational in scope, such as global warming, war and humanitarian intervention, food security, and chronic poverty.

It serves as a forum for researchers at the University of Guelph who think and write about the troubling consequences of processes of globalization— whether economic, environmental, social, or political. By providing a forum for members of the Guelph community to share their research on problems of global scope and significance, we hope to deepen our own insights, spark new lines of investigation, and promote collaborative activity.
