Dignity and Justice Workshop

Friday, November 12, 2021 - 10:00am to 1:00pm

Geddes Hall Coffee House

The Center for Social Concerns and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies are organizing a half day workshop to explore the relationship between dignity and justice at the intersection of Catholic Social Tradition and legal studies. We want to explore the idea of dignity in so far as it relates to justice through legal and social ethical perspectives.

There are three guiding research questions of this workshop: 1) What is the relationship between dignity and justice in Catholic Social Tradition? 2) What can we learn about the concept of dignity from selected legislations and Court decisions? 3) How can we operationalize and enact dignity (i.e. how can we determine whether a person’s dignity has been violated, where is the “threshold of severity?,” how can dignity be best protected?)

The workshop will offer six short presentations and space for discussion. The workshop is designed to bring different colleagues from Notre Dame and members of the South Bend community together. The workshop is part of a larger research initiative on dignity and justice which will also lead to an edited volume on the subject.

Registration is required. Maximum capacity is 36 attendees.
