Since 2020, the Independent Resource Group for Global Health Justice (IRG-GHJ), founded by Sridhar Venkatapuram, Associate Professor of Global Health & Philosophy at King’s College London has aimed to provide political philosophy perspectives on global health justice and injustices which were made blatant in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. This second annual IRG-GHJ conference considers the need to think not only on issues of global health justice, but more fundamentally about the philosophy of global justice itself.
Jointly sponsored by the YTL Centre for Politics, Philosophy and Law & International Resource Group for Global Health Justice (IRG-GHJ).
