Faculty News

Cambridge University Press has just released a book entitled Human Rights and the Ethics of Globalization co-authored by Dan Lee and his daughter Elizabeth J. Lee, who while in law school worked for the Northwestern University School of Law Center for International Human Rights.  The book maps out a philosophical basis for constructing an ethic of globalization and then applies it to case studies in four countries-China, Liberia, Ethiopia and Mexico.  The book concludes with a discussion of prospects for enforcing global compliance with basic human rights standards, focusing particular attention on litigation under the Alien Tort Claims Act.  The book has received very positive pre-publication reviews.  Timothy Fort, who is affiliated with the Institute for Corporate Responsibility and George Washington School of Business, describes it as "one of the best books in business ethics I've read in years!"  Georgie Geraghty, who teaches at the University of Chicago Law School, states, "The Lees have done the unthinkable:  they have managed to create a clear, coherent framework for exploring and understanding one of the more complex topics of our time."  She adds that "the Lees have produced a major contribution, which will be appreciated by scholars and lay readers alike."  Additional information about the book can be accessed at
