Conference: Ethics of Human Development and Global Justice

There is an interesting conference in Valencia, Spain (11/30-12/2). The CFP can be found here. Below is a summary of the objectives of the conference as explained on the conference website.

Achieving human development increasingly demands the joint work of political, economic and solidarity-building institutions and organizations. Also, it demands an active citizenship aware of the problem of poverty in its diverse dimensions. The premise of this conference is that no one should remain indifferent to the lack of freedom implied by conditions of extreme poverty or the impossibility for many people in the planet to fully develop their capabilities. The objective of the conference is to advance towards determining which responsibilities should be taken by each of the relevant actors in human development. It aims to gather intellectuals, educators, policy makers and practitioners to reflect about what are the fundamental demands of development ethics and global justice in their respective roles and tasks. They will be asked to reflect also on the means that may promote education for development and to share their experiences in their fight against poverty, with a special focus on the relations between theory and practice.
