The Paternalism, Health, and Public Policy Project (funded by the Wellcome Trust) is pleased to announce its third workshop.

'Paternalism and Groups'. 16th- 17th June 2022, Oxford. Co-hosted with the Ethox Centre, University of Oxford. 

The workshop will focus on policies designed to promote the health of groups. One important issue to be considered, concerns the extent to which such interventions can be carried out ‘against the will of’ or ‘for the sake of’ those subject to them, given the diversity of preferences and interests within large populations.
