Health rights in (against?) the global marketplace with Ted Schrecker

Ted Schrecker discusses health rights in the global marketplace

Over the past few decades, reorganisation of production and finance across multiple national borders has been accompanied, and often driven, by restructuring of social relationships around the primacy of the market. The consequences have been described by the editor of Le Monde Diplomatique as an ‘inequality machine [that] is reshaping the planet’. That reshaping redistributes opportunities to lead a healthy life (the social determinants of health), and at the same time affects the prospects of political coalitions in support of reducing health disparities. Against this background, the human rights frame of reference is especially valuable as a direct challenge to neoliberal orthodoxy, grounded in the generic commitment to what historical sociologist Margaret Somers has called ‘the right to have rights’ independent of the market.

What our students say

The close-knit nature of the Global Politics MSc has allowed me to closely engage both with our lecturers, and fellow students in the program. The course has inspired us to debate economic and moral issues pertaining to World politics long after classes are over and made me feel part of an intellectual community not simply enrolled in a degree.
