Liam Shields – Just Enough: Sufficiency as a Demand of Justice
University of Louvain
2 December 2016
Twice a year, the Hoover Chair of Economic and Social Ethics organizes a workshop in Louvain-la-Neuve on a forthcoming book in the field of ethics or political theory. Several scholars are gathered to meet the author and discuss the various chapters of the book in progress.
A chance to discuss Liam Shields’ anticipated book built around his widely discussed recent publications on distributive justice, education, and autonomy.
Thanks to the support of the University of Manchester’s School of Social Sciences we offer three small conference grants (£150) to PhD students willing to attend the workshop but unable to travel on their own funds.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to attend the workshop and if you want to apply for one of these small conference grants.
