Jun 27 – Jun 28 all-day
8th Montreal Social Justice Theory Workshop @ Room LB-145, Concordia

8th edition of the Social Justice Theory Workshop, organized by Pablo Gilabert and Peter Dietsch, for the Social Justice Centre, at Concordia, and University of Victoria.

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 workshop is organized by Pablo Gilabert and Peter Dietsch, in association with the Social Justice Centre (Concordia University), le Centre de Recherche en Éthique (Université de Montréal) and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Victoria.

The 8th edition of this intensive research workshop will take place on June 27-28, 2024.

The workshop will be in person. Places are limited. If you would like to participate, please send your name to Christiane Bailey (sjc@concordia.ca) by May 25, 2024.

The workshop will take place at the SHIFT Centre for Social Transformation.
