Epistemic Repair in Global Health: A human rights approach towards epistemic justice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


- Some people in global health are systematically subjected to epistemic wrongs, harms, and injustices. And sometimes, with these epistemic wrongs, come more fundamental harms to their sense of self or dignity.
-Each person has a moral right not to be treated as inferior. This moral right has found different forms of protection under dignity-based mechanisms. But these mechanisms do not extend, at least not explicitly, to epistemic wrongs, harms, and injustices.
- This article tries to pave the way for a dignity-based approach to epistemic repair in global health, specifically through the lens of human rights.
