Global Citizen

Bokens forsideJeg har vært redaktør for den engelskspråklige antologien Global Citizen – Challenges and Responsibility in an Interconnected World, som ble utgitt i slutten av 2014 på Sense Publishers, et forlag på nivå 1 (i tellekantsystemet).

Den kan kjøpes på Amazon (Paperback | Hardcover) eller Barnes & Nobles (Paperback | Hardcover) og du kan få en smakebit her, som inkluderer mitt forord.

Boka springer ut av foredragsrekken Gobal Citizen ved Universitetet i Oslo, som først startet opp høsten 2012. Målet var å spre kunnskap og oppmuntre studenter og ansatte til å få et tverrfaglig og globalt blikk på verden de lever i.

Bidragsyterne er ingen ringere enn Andreas Føllesdal, Ole Petter Ottersen, Inga Bostad, Dan Banik, Halvor Moxnes, Evelin Lindner, Johanne Sundby, Nina Witoszek, Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Karen O’Brien, Helge Hveem, Knut Kjeldstadli og Janicke Heldal Stray.

På forsiden er et kunstverk av Per Krohg, gitt med tillatelse av BONO.

Litt info om boka:

A globalized world places new demands on us as citizens. Global Citizen – Challenges and Responsibility in an Interconnected World gives insight and perspectives on what it means to be a citizen in a global world from Norway’s most distinguished scholars. It poses and answers important questions, such as which duties and rights do we have as citizens in a globalized world; which institutions are just and sustainable, and how can a global ethic and a global worldview be reconciled with the fact that the lives of the greater part of the Earth’s population is still local?

Global Citizen – Challenges and Responsibility in an Interconnected World draws on insights from philosophy, jurisprudence, theology, and the social sciences to shed light on this manifold and important topic, with relevance for policy makers, stakeholders, academics, but most important, for us as citizens who need to take both a political and personal decision on how to live as a citizen in a global world.
