Sex Equality, Entitlements and the Capabilities Approach

Wednesday 13 March, 6pm
Old Theatre, Old Building

Professor Martha Nussbaum will be speaking on Sex Equality, Entitlements and the Capabilities Approach on Wednesday 13 March at LSE.

She will scrutinise the relationship between rights and capabilities as ways of addressing issues of sex equality, arguing that a definite list of the central human capabilities is required if the capabilities approach is to deliver an adequate conception of justice.

Martha Nussbaum is an Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago Law School. She has taught at Harvard, Brown and Oxford universities and was research adviser at the World Institute for Development Economics Research, Helsinki, a part of the United Nations University.

Professor Anne Phillips, director of the Gender Institute, LSE, will be chairing the event, which is organised by the Centre for the Study of Human Rights with the Gender Institute.

The lecture is free and open to all. No ticket required.
