Abstract

This paper employs an interdisciplinary ethical analysis to evaluate how global inequality has been addressed by recent so-called “global goal-setting” initiatives.

It concludes that while these initiatives have achieved some success in addressing global inequality, much still remains to be done. View Full-Text
