Utilizing texts and major figures in ethics, value theory and metaphysics, the course exam-ines different aspects of our existence in an attempt to develop a better understanding of the kinds of beings we are.

The course addresses issues of domestic and global social justice: inequality, poverty, and human migration. The first part of the course examines how classical (E.g., Plato, Locke, Hobbes and Rousseau) and contemporary (E.g., Charles Mills, John Rawls and Obafemi Awolowo) theorists have addressed social injustice. The second more applied part focuses on contemporary social and global economic challenges like poverty and migration.
Community Education Workshops
Development work entails communicating planned policy solutions or newly formulated policies to stakeholders. In the course of my professional career, I have planned and imple-mented many of such workshops in rural and urban communities, with literate and some-times illiterate participants.
