Global equity or "fairness" is undoubtedly one of the premier challenges of our globalizing times. How can markets be made pro-poor? What about global public goods and their production? What are the roles of social institutions? How do these questions play out in specific equity fields, like income, health, and education? Debates about global inequities have animated social protest movements, foreign aid policies, reform of global institutions, and specific policies and programs. Mapping the intellectual terrain, reviewing evidence, pinpointing areas of contention, and proposing fresh approaches will comprise the core of this seminar course. Grades will be determined based on classroom participation, two term papers (brief policy-oriented memo and an essay). No final exam.
