Abstracts

EN
The aim of the paper is to examine Thomas Pogge’s interpretation of extreme poverty as a failure of negative duties of global justice. Pogge argues that we as citizens of affluent societies have a duty of justice to eradicate extreme poverty because we are harming the global poor through our imposition of unjust global order. The paper gives an analysis of the basic structure of this argument in order to take a critic look at its key elements, in particular the theory of causation and negative rights, which are shown as destructive to the argument itself.
