The aim of the conference is to bring together academics from various disciplines – politics, philosophy, economics – as well as policymakers, to discuss the future of work in relation to social justice. There is room on the program for two contributed papers by junior researchers (PhD students, postdocs, or other early career researchers). We therefore invite papers dealing with ethical, political, and methodological issues related to work, and changes in the job market as a result of automation and other technological innovations. This may involve, but is not limited to basic income, social justice, meaningful work, and taxation. We especially encourage the submission of interdisciplinary papers on these topics.

After the conference, the organizers will collect the presented papers for a journal special issue, to which all the speakers are invited to contribute. 

We have secured funding for this workshop from Stiftelsen Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and the Society for Applied Philosophy. This funding allows us to fully cover the accommodation and travel costs of invited graduate and postdoctoral researchers. 

In order to apply, please submit a long abstract (max. 1000 words) accompanied by a short abstract (150 words) in one file anonymized for blind refereeing.

The deadline for submission of papers is 15 December 2019. Submissions should be sent to We aim to inform contributors of our decision by mid-January. For questions about the conference, please email one of the organizers.
