Workshop Description
Egalitarian theories of distributive justice have recently encountered
fundamental challenges. Is egalitarianism susceptible to the leveling down
objection? Is it less plausible than prioritarianism? Does it support
reducing the inequalities resulting from brute luck, but not option luck?
Does it aim to equalize the distribution of welfare at each time or over a
lifetime? What does egalitarianism make of the strong correlation between
inequalities in health and inequalities in socio-economic conditions? In
this two-day workshop, we will discuss current theoretical issues and seek
common and unified grounds for future research into egalitarian theories of
distributive justice.
