Women and minority groups are significantly underrepresented in politics and various other walks of life. ‘Affirmative action’ is one response in tackling this enduring issue. But what is it? Who is it for? And why does it generate so much controversy? We discuss these questions and explore the relationship between affirmative action and social justice.

Elizabeth Anderson is John Dewey Distinguished University Professor of Philosophy, University of Michigan.

Omar Khan (@omaromalleykhan) is Director, Runnymede; Governor, University of East London.

Sarah Fine (@DrSJFine)  is a Fellow, the Forum; Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, KCL.
