Global Development Ethics: A Critique of Global Capitalism


Add your own review!

Overview

Cases of famine, governmental overreach, political abuse and neglect persist even in today's globalised world. Corporate malfeasance, disregard of the environment, and blatant ignorance of the instigators of disasters large and small also continue to register high human costs. In trying to address this, theorists have attempted to elucidate a global ethics that would prescribe courses of actions even when individual and direct causal agency cannot be identified. Following in this tradition, Eddy M. Souffrant explores the concept of a global development ethics, taking in topics including famine, immigration, capitalism, race, and technology. He demonstrates that defining the constituents of a global development ethics depends on a successful analysis of the theoretical and practical structures that cause such global and seemingly intractable conditions. He challenges existing conceptions of global justice and argues for a theory of global ethics that relies on our commonality, such that enables us to welcome the `other', thereby fuelling our recognition of the inequalities that motivate prospective development projects. Ideal for advanced-level students in global ethics, global justice and development studies, this text articulates a vital new ethics of human development.

Reviews

Eddy Souffrant's Global Development Ethics exceeds the critique of global capitalism signaled by its subtitle. Galvanized by the contradictions between human rights and arbitrary aid following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Souffrant poses and examines global ethical questions of identity, recognition, equality of opportunity, rights, and inclusion. This erudite and deeply reflective text should inform future development law and policy. -- Naomi Zack, Professor of Philosophy, University of Oregon

Souffrant's relational approach, his focus upon race, and his case study of recent international efforts and their failures in Haiti are all welcome contributions to ethical discussions of global justice. -- Eric Palmer, Editor, Journal of Global Ethics, President, International Development Ethics Association
