Contemporary political philosophers and philosophers of education tend to focus on theorizing the interconnections between the concepts of education and justice at the level of the nation-state. The workshop explores the implications of shifting this level of analysis from the national to the global level. It considers how to conceive of global educational justice and examines the role of education in fighting global injustices. In particular, it asks which human rights to education, if any, can be justified on the basis of conceptions of global justice and which agents are morally responsible for realizing such rights. Invited speakers include: Harry Brighouse (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Alejandra Boni (Universitat Politècnica de Valencia), Johannes Drerup (Universität Koblenz-Landau), Juan Espíndola (Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas, Mexico City), Jennifer Morton (City College of New York) and Danielle Zwarthoed (Université catholique de Louvain).
