The Role of Fairness in International Resource Politics

Conference - Opening Event

with Thomas Pogge (Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs, Yale University), Kristina Dietz (Researcher at the Institute for Latin American Studies, FU Berlin) and Isabel Feichtner (Ass. Professor for Law and Economics, J.W.Goethe Univ., Frankfurt/M.)

Natural resources have become a key issue in international politics. Competition for access to and control of natural resources has intensified, and so have conflicts over the distribution of benefits as well as over negative environmental and social impacts of exploration and production. In this context, the question arises of how to conceptualize “resource fairness”, i.e. how access to, distribution and use of natural resources can be organized in a way that takes into account the legitimate interests of all actors and institutions involved. In this context, far-reaching questions emerge with regard to the current modes of production and living. In the opening event of the 1st Austrian Conference on International Resource Politics, different conceptual approaches to resource fairness will be introduced and confronted with each other.
