6th Social Justice Theory Workshop, 2022

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.

This year’s workshop is organised by Pablo Gilabert and Peter Dietsch, in association with the Social Justice Centre (Concordia University) and Centre de Recherche en Éthique (Université de Montréal).
