    Fairness, Responsibility, and Climate Change.Paul G. Harris - 2003 - Ethics and International Affairs 17 (1):149-156.
    Most literature on the ethics of global warming focuses on the obligations of industrialized states to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases and to help poor countries do likewise. These books are no exception, arguing that the issue is a matter of international justice and equity.

    International Obligation and Human Health: Evolving Policy Responses to HIV/AIDS.Paul G. Harris & Patricia Siplon - 2001 - Ethics and International Affairs 15 (2):29-52.
    The world is in the early stages of what will be the greatest health crisis since the advent of modern medical technologies. Millions of people—particularly people in many of the world's poor countries—are infected with HIV. The vast majority of these people will go without modern medical intervention or substantial treatment, and will rapidly develop AIDS. The extent of this problem presents profound moral and ethical questions for the world's wealthy people and countries, for it is they who are most (...)

    'Getting Rich Is Glorious': Environmental Values in the People's Republic of China.Paul G. Harris - 2004 - Environmental Values 13 (2):145 - 165.
    Pollution and overuse of resources in China have profound implications for the Chinese people and the world. Globalisation may be partly to blame for this situation, but it is hardly the only explanation. China has been overusing its resources for centuries. Traditional values appear to offer environmentally benign guidance for China's economic development, but they are largely impotent in the face of now-pervasive values manifested in Western-style consumption. Government policies go some way toward addressing this problem, but what may be (...)

    Affluence, Poverty, and Ecology: Obligation, International Relations, and Sustainable Development.Paul G. Harris - 1997 - Ethics and the Environment 2 (2):121 - 138.
    Effective efforts to protect the global environment will require the willing cooperation of the world's poor. Persuading them to join international environmental agreements and to choose environmentally sustainable development requires substantial concessions from the affluent industrialized countries, including additional financial assistance and technology transfers. The affluent countries ought to provide such assistance to the world's poor for ethical reasons. Doing so would promote transnational distributive justice, which is defined here as a fair and equitable distribution among countries of benefits, burdens, (...)

    Considerations of equity and international environmental institutions.Paul G. Harris - 1996 - Environmental Politics 5 (2):274-301.
    International co‐operation is required to combat stratospheric ozone depletion, climate change and other adverse environmental changes. International environmental institutions are the most significant manifestation of such co‐operation. The creation and effectiveness of IEIs are promoted when they contain provisions for international equity, which can be defined as the fair and just distribution among countries of benefits, burdens and decision‐making authority, usually with special consideration given to poor developing countries. Examples of equity provisions in IEIs include new and additional funds and (...)

    Implementing climate equity: The case of europe.Paul G. Harris - 2008 - Journal of Global Ethics 4 (2):121 – 140.
    For over two decades, international environmental equity - the fair and just sharing of the burdens associated with environmental changes - has been the subject of much debate by philosophers, activists and diplomats concerned about climate change. It has been manifested in many international environmental agreements, notably the Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol. The question arises as to whether it is being put into practice in this context. Are the requirements of international environmental equity merely words (...)

    Inviting People to Climate Parties: Differentiating National and Individual Responsibilities for Mitigation.Paul G. Harris - 2012 - Ethics, Policy and Environment 15 (3):309 - 313.
    The Durban Platform for Enhanced Action calls for development of ‘a protocol, another legal instrument or an agreed outcome with legal force under the Convention applicable to all Parties’ (emphasis added). By definition, parties to the climate convention are sovereign states. This reiteration of the role of states reveals an attachment to statist responses to climate change that has so far failed to reduce global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Indeed, GHG pollution is increasing. The main reason for this increase is (...)
