Social Justice Centre and the Department of Philosophy
The aim of the Social Justice Theory Workshop is to enable sustained exploration in the theory of social justice. It addresses topics such as the articulation of ideals and principles of economic, political, gender, race, environmental and cultural justice; the critique of inequality, domination, exploitation and alienation; and the illumination of political institutions, practices and processes of transformation that might foster progressive change.
Workshop papers will be pre-circulated, and participation implies a commitment to reading the papers in advance.
If you’d like to participate, please send your name to Christiane Bailey by August 8.
Peter Dietsch and Pablo Gilabert are organizing the workshop.
