Josh Cohen and Boston Review win major award

The Boston Review, edited by Deborah Chasman and FSI's Josh Cohen, professor of law, political science, and philosophy and CDDRL affiliated faculty, has won the 2010 Utne Independent Press Award for Best Writing. Said Utne, "Crack open Boston Review's generously sized newsprint pages and plunge into a world where poems sit alongside political essays, where fiction coexists with cultural criticism, and where - this is key - every element in the intellectual fiesta is thought-provoking and expertly crafted."



Post Doctoral Fellows teach Global Justice class

Allegra McLeod, Post Doctoral Fellow for the Program on Global Justice, and Kieran Oberman, Post Doctoral Fellow for the Program on Global Justice and the Center for Ethics in Society, are seen preparing for a session of Introduction to Global Justice. Each year the program's Post Doctoral Fellows have the opportunity, as part of their appointment, to teach the Stanford course which includes recent work in political theory on global justice. The course is designed to encourage students to think critically about some of the important questions regarding such issues as global poverty, human rights, fair trade, immigration and climate change. Questions include: Do developed countries have a duty to aid developing countries? When is humanitarian intervention justified? and Is torture ever justified? Readings include Charles Beitz, Thomas Pogge and John Rawls.
