CfP: Workfare

Manchester Workshops in Political Theory, 7-9 September 2016

This workshop aims to take stock of the political philosophical and theoretical debate on workfare, to critically explore the normative underpinning of workfare and those of concrete workfare policies. Workfare will be discussed from various perspectives such as marxism, liberalism or communitarism and in connection to related issues such as the value of work and labor, justice within the welfare system, the wrongs of poverty and exploitation, or the place of the market in the distribution of benefits and burdens.
