Axel Gosseries on “Intergenerational legitimacy: should we expect more than benevolent dictatorship?”
You are invited to join a new reading group on Democracy and Intergenerational Justice, under the EPLAB research project “Present Democracy for Future Generations” (PTDC/FER-FIL/6088/2020). Each month, the group will meet to discuss a published paper, or work in progress related to the project’s theme.
The next session will be hosted by Axel Gosseries (Louvain), who will be presenting the paper “Intergenerational legitimacy: should we expect more than benevolent dictatorship?” (work in progress).
For anyone wishing to attend in person, the group will be at room CAN SC (floor 0). Bring your own laptop/mobile phone and audioset for Zoom connection and perfect hearing! To join the session on Zoom, click here.
If you are interested in joining the group’s mailing list, receiving updates to the schedule, Zoom invitations, and the selected papers prior to the meetings, please write to email@example.com.
The Democracy and Intergenerational Justice Reading Group is co-organised by Devon Cass, Inês Cisneiros, José Pereira and Zachariah Tailor.
