Seeking sources


in Oxford, Politics, Science, The environment

I have decided to take on two of the three potential tutorial students for the St. Hugh’s summer school, primarily because it is a good opportunity to gain teaching experience. As such, I am in the process of finding sources on the following topics that would be appropriate for clever high school students:

  1. Causes and consequences of the 1973 oil price shock
  2. The creation and history of OPEC
  3. Distributive justice issues, regarding food
  4. Corporate involvement in Latin America, same sector

If anything jumps to mind immediately to anyone, I would appreciate if you would leave a comment.

Q.3 has to be something by Sen, afraid I can’t be too much more specific… If you wanted, you could of course bring in a lot of global justice (Rawls, Beitz, Pogge) since the issue is generally between countries. Though I believe Sen makes the point almost any country could feed everyone if it really wanted, which is why famine is rare in democracies.
