photo of book coverProf. Madison Powers and Prof. Ruth Faden’s (Johns Hopkins) Structural Injustice: Power, Advantage, and Human Rights has appeared with Oxford University Press. From the blurb: “Madison Powers and Ruth Faden here develop an innovative theory of structural injustice that links human rights norms and fairness norms. Norms of both kinds are grounded in an account of well-being. … Unlike theories of structural injustice tailored to largely benign social processes, Powers and Faden’s theory addresses typical patterns of structural injustice—those in which the wrong conduct of identifiable agents creates or sustain mutually reinforcing forms of injustice.”
