GLOBUS  is a research project that critically examines the European Union’s contribution to global justice.

Challenges to global justice are multifaceted and what is just is contested. Combining normative and empirical research GLOBUS explores underlying political and structural obstacles to justice. Analyses of the EU’s positions and policies are combined with in-depth studies of non-European perspectives on the practices of the EU. Particular attention is paid to the fields of migration, trade and development, cooperation and conflict, as well as climate change.

Kick-off conference

Since its inception the EU has proclaimed an ambition to promote justice at the global level. But what precisely is the EU’s contribution to global justice? And what would a just foreign policy look like?

The kick-off conference of the GLOBUS project was held in Oslo on 9-10 June 2016.
