Is Europe Unjust?

Dates:
  • Mon 16 Sep 2019 09.00 - 18.30
  • Tue 17 Sep 2019 09.30 - 18.30
  Add to Calendar 2019-09-16 9:00 2019-09-17 18:30 Europe/Paris Is Europe Unjust?

Publics across Europe increasingly feel that the EU undermines the problem-solving capacities of its member states—particularly in social, welfare, and labor policy—and increases inequality both within and across them.

The EU strikes many, as a result, as unjust more than simply undemocratic. This raises various questions:
• What principles of socio-economic justice, if any, should apply at the EU level?
• What would a Europe that promotes rather than undermines justice look like?

While there has been much written on the democratic deficit, very little, by contrast, has been written on these questions. The aim of this workshop is to bring together top scholars to discuss these topics critically and constructively from both normative and empirical perspectives. Participants will be encouraged to identify principles of justice for the EU that could aid in evaluating and shaping EU policy in one or more issue areas. Here are some examples of more specific questions that could guide discussion.
