About this item

The Ethics of Development: An Introduction systematically and comprehensively examines the ethical issues surrounding the concept of development. The book addresses important questions such as:

  • What does development mean?
  • Is there a human right to development?
  • If we aim for sustainable development in an age of global climate change, should developed nations sacrifice economic growth for the sake of allowing developing countries to catch up?
  • Should eradication of poverty or diminution of radical inequality be the principal focus of developmental policy?
  • What are the macroeconomic theories of development? And how have they informed development policy?
  • How does development work in practice?

Featuring case studies throughout, this textbook provides a philosophical introduction to an incredibly topical issue studied by students within the fields of applied ethics, global justice, economics, politics, sociology, and public policy.
