While Justice Everywhere takes a break over the summer, we recall some of the highlights from our 2019-2020 season. This post focuses on contributions relating to the COVID-19 crisis and its social and political fallout.
The coronavirus crisis has raised countless ethical and political questions, and in many cases further exposed injustices in society. The cooperative of authors at Justice Everywhere have been engaged in assessing many of these questions in recent months.
- Our “Philosophers’ Rundown on the Coronavirus Crisis” collects succinct responses on 9 pressing questions concerning: the feasibility of social justice, UBI, imagining a just society, economic precarity, education, climate change, internet access, deciding under uncertainty, and what counts as (un)acceptable risk.
Other independent posts addressed a wide range of issues, including:
- The ethics of shaming those who flout social distancing guidelines (by Paul Billingham and Tom Parr)
- Electoral justice in the times of pandemic (by Alexandru Volacu)
- Recognition regimes (by Gottfried Schweiger)
- Forced marriage (by Helen McCabe)
- Healthcare supply chains, disaster-mitigation and state manufacturing (by Robert Simpson)
- Lessons from poverty and inequality in Brazil (by Katarina Pitasse Fragoso and Nathália Sanglard)
- Crisis management and conditionality (by Peter Dietsch)
Justice Everywhere will return in full swing on 7th September with fresh weekly posts by our cooperative of regular authors. If you have a suggestion for a topic or would like to contribute a guest post on a topical subject in political philosophy (broadly construed), please feel free to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
