Duke’s Center for Law, Economics, and Public Policy will be hosting a conference on “New Scholarship on Population Ethics.”
April 24-25, 2017
Duke Law School
The conference will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday April 24, and 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday April 25. The conference schedule, with session times and paper titles, is here.
“Population ethics” concerns the ethical status of individual decisions and governmental policies that change the membership of the human population—the identities of those individuals who exist—and, perhaps, the size of the population as well. The aim of the conference is to present new scholarship in this vital area of research, and to generate a vigorous conversation among the participants and audience.
Conference participants include leading researchers from philosophy and economics. A current participant list may be found here.
Duke faculty, staff, and graduate or professional students are welcome to register, as are those with an academic affiliation elsewhere. Registration is now open and the registration tab is here.
