International PPE Conference 2020

What? Who? When? Where?

World-Scale Justice: Beyond Global North & Global South?

To what extent is the Global South dependent on the Global North and vice versa? Is development aid effective? Who is going to carry the burden of climate change? Do countries in the Global North have a duty to open their borders?

The 5th International PPE Conference offers an academic platform to approach these questions through keynote speeches, workshops and panel discussions.  We will critically analyse the divide between the so-called Global North and Global South, raising questions around world-scale justice and responsibility.

This will be achieved in the first place by questioning the linguistics and the academic use of the framing of such a gap. Subsequently, the general drivers of global inequality will be examined together with their relevant causes and implications. In particular, those regarding some key challenges, such as climate change, migrations, development and conflicts, will be deeply investigated in relation to the core topic.


We are looking forward to discuss the topic with you from 17th to 19th April!
