Course ID: 207548


This course explores the relationship between law and injustice, focusing in particular on theorising injustice, and especially those injustices that infect but do not originate in the law. Through readings in contemporary political and legal philosophy and political essays, we consider: different types of injustice, such as structural, historical, epistemic, and indigenous; duties to resist injustice for victims, bystanders, and beneficiaries; and forms of responding to injustice, including anger, civil and uncivil disobedience, and political violence.
