Global Justice in Educational Support: For Whom and Why?

Bryson D. Kinyaduka


Global justice as a philosophical concept has been narrowly defined by most literature. The global justice referred in literature focuses on mankind acting impartially to another.  Man has to act impartially in helping another man when help needed. However, what should be the criteria for helping? Should help be directed to nations whose apolitical and political leaders are corrupt? Who deserves global justice? This paper attempts to answer these questions using analogies. The paper also raises pertinent questions with the purpose of broadening the scope of global justice. That is defining the concept in a broad sense. Finally, the paper attempts to discuss criteria for providing what is perceived as justice; whether, it is justice to support nations without public funds and resources prudence and lastly,  it concludes nations with prudence in utilising resources are the ones deserving educational financial support, and that there is need to have a broad view of looking at global justice.
