UPF dedicates the 2008-2009 course to world justice

It\'s undeniable that we are living in a globalised world. Technological advances have made it possible for everyone to communicate with each other. It has also achieved a high level of inter-connection in economic matters in general, and in financial matters in particular. However, this phenomenon has not been accompanied by a similar globalisation effect when it comes to human rights. There has been no end to hunger in the world; the distribution of wealth worldwide is far from being even minimally fair; inequalities have grown in such key areas as health and education.

Faced with this panorama, Pompeu Fabra University would like to start a wide debate, in which all members of the university community will be able to take part, which will lead us to deep reflexion on what it means when we refer to world justice in this day and age.
