The Pluralism, Democracy, and Justice (PDJ) research group of the Department of Philosophy of the University of Tromsø invites you to participate in the conference Realizing Global Justice: Theory and Practice to be held on 19–22 June 2013 at the University of Tromsø, Norway.
The conference is intended as a meeting place for friendly discussions and conjoint learning among students, young researchers and internationally renowned researchers such as Professor Philippe Van Parijs (Catholic University of Louvain), Professor Thomas Pogge (Yale University), Professor Gerard Delanty (University of Sussex), Professor Tove Pettersen (University of Oslo), and Associate Professor Eva Erman (Uppsala University).
The University of Tromsø, the northernmost university in the world, was included among the world’s top universities by the Academic Ranking of World Universities in 2010. Moreover, the university was pleased and honored to have Noam Chomsky as a guest lecturer at a meeting held in September 2012 demonstrating our engagement in an open and meaningful debate on global justice issues.
The conference will also be a great opportunity to explore the capital city of the Arctic, a place full of culture and history, surrounded by incredibly beautiful fjords and mountains. At the time of the conference, it will be possible to enjoy the midnight sun.
During the conference days, you are also invited to admire the photography exhibition “The Claims of Justice”, by the Brazilian photographer, Rodolfo Gil. A very inspiring experience, indeed!
