A growing number of experts in economics, political science and sociology believe that the freedom of action of the nation-state in coping with issues of distributive justice is waning. Current processes of economic privatisation and globalization shift power over distribution from the state toward ‘capital’ and markets. What are the implications for social justice? The conference will explore the risks and options of privatised markets and transnational regimes for social justice on the different levels, as the individual, domestic and international.
The conference will consist of plenary sessions as well as of thematic panels for which we invite abstract submissions. The abstract deadline is November 30th, 2004. The conference venue will be the Atlantic Hotel Bremen close to the campus of the University of Bremen.
