Among the questions we are particularly interested in debating are the following: 

- What is exploitation? Is exploitation always unjust? How to distinguish exploitation from other forms of moral wrongdoing? 

- What taxonomy of exploitation can we identify in capitalistic and socialist regimes?

- Are new forms of exploitation essentially distinct from traditional forms of exploitation? 

- Which are the forms of labor most affected by current forms of exploitation? How can decommodification mitigate individuals’ exploitation in the labor market

- How can policies of predistribution and/or redistribution address issues of exploitation?

- Can egalitarian policies mitigate exploitation, and if so, which ones are the most effective?

- Can exploitation happen in an egalitarian society, and what can we do about it?

- What is the role of the law in perpetuating inequality and exploitation, especially through financial markets?
