The aims of this workshop are, first, to develop a better understanding of
the links between social or relational egalitarianism (for short, social
egalitarianism) – and theories of respect and recognition. Second, the
workshop aims to determine how a normative framework based on respect,
recognition and social equality can help to provide guidance on public
policy and to address applied ethical problems such as those of poverty,
gender injustice and health inequalities.

•       Kimberley Brownlee (University of Warwick);
•       Eszter Kollar (University of Frankfurt);
