Relational and Non-relational Views

July 5-7, 2012
Central European University, Budapest

Organized by the Department of Political Science, CEU and the Global
Justice Network

Keynote speakers:

Should duties of distributive justice extend to humanity at large or be
limited to compatriots? The debate about the proper scope of distributive
duties explores whether the concern with individual distributive shares is
grounded in our shared humanity, as cosmopolitans claim, or rather duties
of justice arise only among those who are subject to the same coercive
political institutions, participate in a shared social practice, or share
in the same culture, as proponents of the so-called practice-dependent view
hold. Parallel to this debate, discussions in the theory of justice have
focused increasingly on the problem whether an egalitarian distribution of
social resources has independent moral significance, as distributive
conceptions propose, or instead any profile of distribution is morally
desirable only insofar that it advances egalitarian social and political
relations, as social-relational conceptions of justice claim. The workshop
aims to bring together these two debates in contemporary political theory,
with the expectation that insights from one may shed new light on problems
discussed in the other. We especially welcome papers that aim to bridge the
two problems, but also interested in papers with new insights in either of
the two fields. We welcome papers that discuss general theoretical problems
as well as those with a practical political focus.
