Laurence Simon, visiting professor at Program on Global Justice

The Program on Global Justice is pleased to welcome Professor Laurence Simon to FSI and Stanford University. Simon is professor at Brandeis University's Heller School, director of Heller School's Sustainable Development Programs, and associate dean, Academic Planning. He will be visiting the Global Justice program this winter and spring.

While at Stanford, Professor Simon will be finishing a book on the relevance of the work of Paulo Freire to today's poor (Simon worked with Freire in the early part of his career). Simon will participate in the Global Justice Workshop, present some parts of his work, and provide advice - based on his experience at the Heller School and in international development organizations, and his interest in philosophical issues about development and justice - on how to build the Global Justice program.
