Abstract/Description

Abstract. This paper employs an interdisciplinary ethical analysis to evaluate how global inequality has been addressed by recent so-called "global goal-setting" initiatives. It seeks to contextualize these initiatives within theoretical paradigms of human rights and human development, and to utilize these paradigms in evaluating the successes and shortcomings of the goal-setting initiatives. It concludes that while these initiatives have achieved some success in addressing global inequality, much still remains to be done.
