Introducing the topic of the 5th International PPE Conference 2020

The future of global justice through the North-South divide

The Conference of 2020 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.

The International PPE Conference of 2020 aims to shed light on some potential answers and to provide ground for further paths of inquiries, so to allow the conversation around global justice and responsibility to be enriched through advancements in future research. This can and will only be achieved through the lenses of interdisciplinary and international research, involving scholars and students that can bring together different scientific and socially-situated perspectives.

Registration will open soon. We are looking forward to discuss the topic with you from 17th to 19th April 2020!
