Europe on Distributive Justice

International Workshop

  • June 14-16, 2017

What is the European view on distributive justice? And how should diversity of values within the European countries influence theories of distributive justice?

This international workshop aims to get these reflections out in the open. The workshop will gather some of the most prominent and experienced scholars of distributive justice in Europe as well as promising, up-and-coming scholars representing the next generation of theorists. They will discuss the core arguments and theories in the field and specifically reflect on how the arguments build on value assumptions that relate to their specific societal background.
