SOC Philosophy and Global Health

Professor Daniel Weinstock promises to argue contra Onora O`Neill and contra Jonathan Wolff.
He will discuss conditions under which it is both philosophically appropriate, and perhaps politically most effective to frame issues of justice in terms of rights. These conditions are met by some of the most pressing issues facing theorists and practitioners of global justice. He will take examples also on global health.  
Opening words: Juha Teperi, Dean
In the panel after the presentation will be
•    Lindsay Stirton, Professor, Sussex Law School, UK
•    Jurgen De Wispelaere, Political Economy Research Fellow, Independent Social Research Foundation/University of Bath, UK
•    Arto Laitinen, Professor, UTA
•    Anneli Milén, Professor, UTA
