The Politics of Equality

The aim of the course is to offer the students an opportunity to critically scrutinize different conceptions of equality as well as the political implications of these conceptions.

The course is structured into three themes that cover one third of the course each: Democracy and equality; distribution and equality; and culture and equality. The main focus is on contemporary contributions to the debate on these themes, and particularly on the concrete policy implications of these contributions.
