Public Lecture on the World Bank’s New Environmental and Social Standards:
Why do 300 NGOs Disapprove? Ethically, Who is Right?

Jay Drydyk is interested in how human rights, justice, and democracy can be understood from global and cross-cultural perspectives. Working with colleagues in Canada and India, he has studied ethical risks that arise when development displaces people and their communities. This work resulted in Displacement by Development: Ethics, Rights and Responsibilities (Cambridge, 2011). With Ashwani Peetush, he co-edited Human Rights: India and the West (Oxford, 2015). His current project – Is Global Ethics Possible? – defines the scope of global ethics and examines the capacity of diverse moral outlooks to reach agreement on issues of global ethics. He is past president of the International Development Ethics Association and currently is a Fellow of the Human Development and Capability Association.
