In their most recent book published in 2019, Madison Powers and Ruth Faden follow up with their project to develop an approach for social justice in public health and present a wider more general theory of structural injustice. Central to their theory is the relationship between several core dimensions of well-being and fundamental human rights, institutional responsibility and civil activism. In this reading group we would like to provide the space for an in-depth discussion of this work and its wider implications for bioethics, public health ethics, ethics of technology, and other related fields.
At the beginning of each session one of the participants will give a 10-15 min. summary of the chapters to be discussed and will prepare one or two questions to start the discussion. The discussion will then be structured rather loosely according to the group’s needs. Each individual session will take 90min.
|Session 1: 12.01.22; 17.00 – 18.30||Chapters 1 & 2|
|Session 2: 26.01.22; 17.00 – 18.30||Chapters 3 & 4|
|Session 3: 09.02.22; 17.00 – 18.30||Chapters 5 & 6|
|Session 4: 02.03.22; 17.00 – 18.30||Chapters 7 & 8|
|Session 5: tbd||Discussion with the authors|
If you are interested, please e-mail Leon Rossmaier (email@example.com) to receive the link to the online meeting and indicate for which session you would like to provide the summary.
