15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module will examine issues of gender justice in private law which raise to a different extent global justice issues: sex trafficking, image-based abuse and reproductive torts. In addition, it will highlight the regressive effect of tort law, the tension between efficiency and distributive justice and the relevance of these inquiries to global justice. Two themes would emerge from these inquiries: the contribution of `irresponsible' demand to supply-side exploitation; and the potential of progressive use of the concept of property to afford better protection to the `have-nots'.
