The 2012 Workshop in Applied Philosophy

September, 28, 2012Northeastern University

This workshop will consider new theoretical research on the topic of global justice and the ethics of exclusion. Questions around inclusion and exclusion are increasingly central to discussions of global justice. For example, what norms or moral principles ought to be used to determine political membership? What, if anything, do citizens of democracies owe to people who are forced to leave their home countries (refugees, stateless people, etc.)? Is exclusion a necessary feature of contemporary political life or can we imagine a different kind of community? What are the implications of globalization for norms of inclusion and exclusion? These, and other related questions, will be discussed at the workshop.
