Publication of a book by Valentin Beck, "A Theory of Global Responsibility"

At the beginning of the 21st century, a large proportion of the global population still lives in dire poverty. This prompts the urgent question of what citizens of affluent countries morally owe to individuals living in such poverty worldwide. Valentin Beck answers this question by developing a comprehensive theory of global responsibility. The book tackles central questions for theories of global justice and undertakes a detailed analysis of our entanglement in global social structures, in order to shed new light on one of the greatest moral challenges of our times. Further information
