8th Global Conference
Saturday 16th March – Monday 18th March 2013
Call for Presentation:
In the context of Pluralism, Inclusion and Citizenship, the project recognizes that it is an arduous pursuit to provide a fully adequate definition of justice; the project focuses on the fact that we can clearly acknowledge instances of injustice. Injustice arises in manifold forms and with varying degrees of intensity. From global forms of injustice such as world hunger, poverty or war crimes to more local ones such as ethnic or religious discrimination or insufficient health insurance, a considerable number of people are victims of continuous exploitation and suffering. This awareness of injustice has increased even more with the rise of globalization. Injustice is not confined to a certain part of the world, but it transgresses frontiers. This leads to our all witnessing and experiencing injustice directly or indirectly, and encourages us to act responsibly in minimising, alleviating or ending it. This multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary project also seeks to define the framework of injustice by addressing its various underlying causes and its impact on all aspects that concern not only our inter-human relations but also our interaction with other non-human beings.
In particular presentations, papers, workshops and pre-formed panels are invited on any of the following themes:
1. The Idea of Injustice
2. Political Injustice
3. Economic Injustice
4. Global Injustice
Presentations will also be considered which deal with related themes.
