Global Poverty, Injustice, and Resistance

Langue : Anglais

Couverture de l’ouvrage Global Poverty, Injustice, and Resistance
Each year, millions of people die from poverty-related causes. In this groundbreaking and thought-provoking book, Gwilym David Blunt argues that the only people who will end this injustice are its victims, and that the global poor have the right to resist the causes of poverty. He explores how the right of resistance is used to reframe urgent political questions: is illegal immigration a form of resistance? Can transnational social movements, such as the indigenous rights movement, provide the foundations for civil resistance to global poverty? If peaceful resistance fails, is armed struggle justified? Do people living in affluent states have a responsibility to help even if it requires them to break the law? Giving clear historical examples and engaging with fields including philosophy, international law, history, and international political studies, this volume addresses real-world issues from terrorism to activism. It will be important for anyone interested in applied philosophy and global injustice.
Introduction: an unavoidable gaze; 1. Global poverty, justice, and intransigent non-compliance; 2. The right to resistance; 3. Does global poverty trigger the right to resistance?; 4.
