Kant’s Legal Theory and Global Justice University of Bayreuth, Germany Date TBA
Keynote speakers: TBA
Considered for a long time the “work of a senile mind”, Kant’s legal theory has long been ignored in debates on global justice. Kantian theories focused mainly on Kant’s moral philosophy and on moral concepts such as dignity and autonomy to provide arguments for global justice and political questions.
Is Kant’s legal theory still pertinent today? How can Kant’s legal philosophy be applied to current global challenges such as climate change, refugees, migration, growing populism and nationalist movements, and threats to international peace?
