Virtual PPE Conference (4th - 6th September 2020)

Is the Global North – Global South concept still relevant? Does it explain inequalities and dependencies in our modern world? Who is going to carry the burden of climate change? Is development aid morally justifiable?

The 5th International PPE Conference offers an academic and - for the first time - digital platform to approach these questions and critically analyse the divide between the so-called Global North and Global South, raising questions around world-scale justice and responsibility. Therefore, the general drivers of world-scale inequality will be examined together with their relevant causes and implications around key challenges such as climate change, the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, development aid, colonial strcutures, etc.
