As you may have read in the IJR News section of our website, Fanie du Toit and I were at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Studies earlier this week to attend the Law and Poverty Colloquium hosted by the University’s Law Faculty. The Faculty brought together an amazing programme of presenters and participants, and I particularly enjoyed the opening address by Professor Nancy Fraser of the New School for Social Research in New York.
Fraser discussed the dimensions of justice, which she construed as ‘parity of participation’, and referred to the equally important elements of redistribution, recognition and representation.
The full programme with links to papers can be viewed here. There are instructions for viewing papers in secure PDF format – I haven’t managed to do this myself, but you may be able to! Alternatively, contact details for the Law Faculty can be found here.
