  1. Epistemic Injustice in Academic Global Health.Himani Bhakuni & Seye Abimbola - 2021 - Lancet Global Health 9 (10):Pages e1465-e1470 Journal home p.
    This Viewpoint calls attention to the pervasive wrongs related to knowledge production, use, and circulation in global health, many of which are taken for granted. We argue that common practices in academic global health (eg, authorship practices, research partnerships, academic writing, editorial practices, sensemaking practices, and the choice of audience or research framing, questions, and methods) are peppered with epistemic wrongs that lead to or exacerbate epistemic injustice. We describe two forms of epistemic wrongs, credibility deficit and interpretive marginalisation, which (...)

    Reproductive justice: Non‐interference or non‐domination?Himani Bhakuni - 2023 - Developing World Bioethics 23 (2):93-98.
    The reproductive justice movement started by black women’s rights activists made its way into the academic literature as an intersectional approach to women’s reproductive autonomy. While there are many scholars who now employ the term ‘reproductive justice’ in their research, few have taken up the task of explaining what ‘justice’ entails in reproductive justice. In this paper I take up part of this work and attempt to clarify the relevant kind of freedom an adequate theory of reproductive justice would postulate. (...)

    Epistemic Repair in Global Health: A Human Rights Approach Towards Epistemic Justice.Himani Bhakuni - 2023 - BMJ Global Health 2023.
    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 (...)

    Transitional Health Justice.Himani Bhakuni & Lucas Miotto - 2023 - In Himani Bhakuni & Lucas Miotto (eds.), Justice in Global Health: New Perspectives and Current Issues. Routledge.
    In the past few years, health and human rights scholars have stressed upon the need for rebuilding or reforming our health systems to make them both more resilient to health emergencies and less prone to nurturing inequalities. Discussions about health reform often centre on the ends of reform: the kind of health systems that should be built and the demands of justice that they should be able to satisfy once reformed. However, little has been said about the demands of justice (...)

    Conscientious objection to abortion in the developing world: The correspondence argument.Himani Bhakuni & Lucas Miotto - 2020 - Developing World Bioethics 21 (2):90-95.
    In this paper we extend Heidi Hurd’s “correspondence thesis” to the termination of pregnancy debate and argue that the same reasons that determine the permissibility of abortion also determine the justifiability of acts involving conscientious objection against its performance. Essentially, when abortion is morally justified, acts that prevent or obstruct it are morally unjustified. Therefore, despite conscientious objection being legally permitted in some global south countries, we argue that such permission to conscientiously object would be morally wrong in cases of (...)

    Glocalization of bioethics.Himani Bhakuni - 2022 - Global Bioethics 33 (1):65-77.
    There appears to be a conflict between global bioethical principles and the local understanding and application of these principles, but this conflict has misleadingly been characterized through the east–west dichotomy. This dichotomy portrays bioethical principles as western and as alien to non-western cultures. In this paper, I present reasons to reject the east–west dichotomy. Using the discussion around the principle of informed consent as an example, I propose that while bioethical values are common, bioethical governance must display a certain flexibility (...)

    Justice in Global Health: New Perspectives and Current Issues.Himani Bhakuni & Lucas Miotto (eds.) - 2023 - Routledge.
    Rather than making another attempt at proposing a single and unifying theory of global health justice, this timely collection brings together, instead, scholars from a range of traditions to frame the issue more broadly, highlighting not only different perspectives but also key topics and debates. -/- The volume features chapters that offer both new theoretical approaches to global health justice, as well as fresh takes on existing frameworks. Others adopt a bottom-up approach to tackle specific problems, including the sexual rights (...)
