About the Author

Iris Marion Young [deceased] was Professor of Political Science, University of Chicago. She is the author of Inclusion and Democracy and On Female Body Experience.


"Carefully distinguishing between "blaming" from responsible accountability, [Young] challenges assumption while eliciting a suggestive framework for her successors to further develop a model based on social connections, domestic as well as cross-border responsibilities as they touch on global poverty and need." --Health and Human Rights "[The book] is both very distinctively the work of Iris Marion Young in its topic, style of argument and presentation, but it also makes a number of important contributions to contemporary political philosophy, through trying to work out a 'social connection' theory of responsibility. It is particularly impressive in the open way it draws on sources -- equally at home discussing Derrida, Sartre and Levinas, as contemporary analytic philosophers such as G.A. Cohen, Alan Buchanan and Robert Goodin.'--Jonathan Wolff, University College London "Iris Marion Young's death in 2006 was a tragic loss for the field of political theory, and this manuscript is evidence of how much she had yet to contribute. Like all her work, it addresses issues of enormous philosophical and political importance, and does so in a way that is original and insightful. It integrates a rich array of examples, concepts, theories and resources, from empirical social science to continental philosophy, and does so in a way that is seamless and effortless... it's an important manuscript and a fitting testament to Young's career."--Will Kymlicka, Queens University "Iris Marion Young's last book proves a fitting capstone to her work on justice. In Responsibility for Justice, Young proposes a social-connection model of responsibility to show that everyone is responsible for changing unjust structures because their interdependent actions support such structures. Her analysis proves strong, insightful, and accessible."--Jeffery L. Nicholas, The Review of Politics
