Economic Justice

  • Paul Cobben


The Tilburg conference focused on the question of global economic justice, i.e., the question of just distribution of wealth on a world-scale. The discussion of this theme first asks for answers to some fundamental problems: What is the criterion for “justice”, in what sense justice can be linked to the distribution of wealth, for what reason does it makes sense to thematize the distribution of wealth on a world-scale? These kinds of questions are treated in the first three contributions of this part.
