Re-framing Justice in a Globalising World

Ralph Miliband Lectures on Inequalities: dimensions and challenges

Date: Tuesday 8 March 2005
Time: 6:30pm
: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker:  Professor Nancy Fraser
Chair:  Professor David Held

Globalisation is changing the way we argue about justice.  Not so long ago, disputes about justice assumed a Keynesian-Westphalian framework.  Debated within national publics, such disputes concerned relations among fellow citizens and the possibility of the redress of injustice by territorial states.  But changing global circumstances call for a rethinking of this model.  Professor Fraser proposes a strategy for thinking about justice today.

Nancy Fraser is Henry A and Louise A Loeb Professor of Philosophy and Politics at the Graduate Faculty of New School University and co-editor of Constellations.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.  Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
