Today, on July 12th, an organizational team of political philosophers and political epistemologists from the University of Rijeka’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences formally inaugurated the seventh edition of the Equality and Citizenship Summer School. This conference connects international academics interested in increasing socioeconomic inequalities, civic and human rights, and normative ethical standards. This year’s Summer School opened with a lecture held by Ingrid Robeyns, an esteemed Dutch philosopher and ethicist, and moderated by Hana Samaržija. Robeyns introduced her theory of maximum wealth limits that could bind excessively affluent technological and financial entrepreneurs. The Summer School will last for five days, with speakers including Oxford’s Collis Tahzib, who will elaborate on his normative theory of justice. On July 15th, Ivan Cerovac, a political philosopher from Rijeka, will familiarize the audience with his recently published and broadly acclaimed book on epistemic democracy. The Ingrid Robeyns and Collis Tahzib symposia arose from the Public Justification and Pluralism of Abilities research project, funded by the Croatian Science Foundation.
