Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric

“Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric” has recently received a generous grant by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft to upgrade its structure and web appearance. Two exciting re-launch issues to celebrate this, and to launch the new format of the journal, will appear in late 2015 and early 2016 (watch this space). But today we would like to introduce you to our brand new website (including a new electronic submission system): http://www.theglobaljusticenetwork.org/index.php/gjn

“Thinking outside the Cage: Towards a Nonspeciesist Paradigm for Scientific Research” A Conference to be held at Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada, March 27-28, 2014

“Thinking outside the Cage: Towards a Nonspeciesist Paradigm for Scientific Research”
A Conference to be held at Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada, March 27-28, 2014

Scientific research is currently governed on the premise that humans have a right to use sentient animals as subjects of harmful research for our benefit. What would a non-speciesist alternative look like?  We have invited leading scientists, public policy experts, humane educators, legal scholars and political theorists to help us identify the opportunities and challenges involved in pursuing a new ethical, legal and political framework regarding animals in research. Can the same legal and regulatory safeguards regarding the use of human subjects in research also be extended to animal subjects? Can questions regarding the treatment of animals within academic institutions be reframed as matters of public responsibility, and made subject to democratic deliberation by the larger community? This conference is intended to encourage critical reflection on the limits of existing regulations, and to inspire creative thinking about alternative frameworks and effective avenues to change. The conference is organized by the Animals in Philosophy, Politics, Law and Ethics program at Queen’s University, Kingston (www.queensu.ca/philosophy/varia/APPLE.html). Funding is generously provided by the Abby Benjamin Fellowship program, and the Queen’s Forum for Philosophy and Public Policy. For further information, including a preliminary schedule and list of confirmed speakers, and a registration form, please visit the conference website:  www.outsidethecage.net read more...

Vulnerbility in Context – second call

Second Call for Papers

 

Vulnerability in Context

Workshop at the University of Ottawa

 

October 9-10, 2014

 

Co-Convenors: Patrick Fafard and Christine Straehle,

Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa

Vulnerabilityis a concern of both medical and bioethics, and, increasingly, of public health ethics. It is also a central concern of global justice. However, the concept of vulnerability, what it is and why it is morally salient is under-theorized in all of these fields.

This workshop aims to bring together theorists who work on conceptualizing vulnerability as an action-guiding principle in political and moral philosophy; and bioethicists and public policy theorists working on instances of vulnerability in specific health contexts. The exchanges generated by the workshop will help assess the heuristic value of the concept of vulnerability that is being developed in the context of political theory and moral philosophy. read more...
