The presentation from Professor Thomas Pogge’s 2011 Stegley Lecture, What are the responsibilities of the affluent to address global poverty?, is now available for download as a PDF here.
Professor Pogge is one of the world’s most ardent critics of global injustice. His presentation examines the massive disparity between the relative wealth of most citizens in affluent countries and the profound poverty of the rest of the world, and asks whether the governments of wealthy countries and their citizens perpetuate this injustice.
Many thanks to the Asia Pacific Centre for Social Investment at Swinburne University for allowing us to share this stirring presentation.
