Redistributive Human Rights? A Workshop


About the workshop

The “Redistributive Human Rights?” workshop to be held on Thursday 31 January and Friday 1 February 2019 will consider the different ways in which the language and frameworks of human rights have been mobilised - both to make redistribute justice claims or to contest economic inequalities, but also to close down political discussions around distributional questions and crush Third World demands for global wealth redistribution. The workshop will be held at the University of New South Wales and is sponsored by Australian Human Rights Institute (UNSW Sydney), La Trobe University and the Institute for International Law and the Humanities (Melbourne Law School).

The keynote address will be given by Samuel Moyn, the Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale University, “Human Rights, Distributive Ethics, and Political Economy”.
