The ‘Beyond-GDP’ discourse as to how to understand and measure social progress is no longer confined to social-scientific development researchers or other academics. Policy makers and civil society at national, inter- and transnational levels are engaged in discussing and devising concepts and indicators that would facilitate assessing social progress domestically and globally. What is striking about these processes of opinion and will formation is how little attention they pay to theories of (global) justice.
The workshop aims at filling this gap by bringing together political philosophers and theorists as well as scholars working in development economics and social-scientific development research so as to exchange their understandings of both justice and development.
Attendance of the workshop is free. Places are limited, and will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.
