The Columbia University Heyman Center for the Humanities is sponsoring a seminar on global justice featuring Nobel Prize winners Joseph Stiglitz and Amartya Sen and prominent moral philosopher Thomas Nagel. Moderated by Joseph Stiglitz, University Professor at Columbia, the forum will take a fresh look at globalization and economic disparity among nations. Are the economic and political policies of wealthy countries contributing to increased poverty and inequality worldwide? What efforts are being made to level the playing field? How do national goals and sovereignty hinder the quest for fair bilateral relations, just debt reconstructing and adequate financial aid to resource-poor nations? What are the moral responsibilities of governments today?
