Conference Theme
The conference theme “A World United: Allies in Development” was chosen with the hope of inspiring thoughtful conversations about the important relationships that can both frustrate and facilitate development. Although we are primarily concerned with questions of personal relationships in which individuals and groups of people ally themselves with one another to bring about ethical development, this theme is also meant to capture alliances at every level of development, including alliances between and across nation states, corporations, multinational groups, NGOs, etc.

A World United, the eleventh congress of the International Development Ethics Association, will be held conjointly with the seventh conference on development, Collective Action and Development, of GREThA (Groupe de Recherche en Économie Théorique et Appliquée)All participants are welcome to attend both conference sessions. The two conferences will take place in the same venue (Pole Juridique et Judiciaire, downtown historical Bordeaux). For further details concerning Collective Action And Development, see:

Call for Papers: 2018 Workshop in Philosophy and Poverty

2018 Workshop in Philosophy and Poverty
Topic: Poverty and the Family
Invited Speaker: Jonathan Wolff (Oxford)
17 & 18 May 2018, University of Salzburg
Deadline for Submissions: 15 December 2017
The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) of the University of Salzburg is happy to announce the call for papers for its "2018 Salzburg Workshop in Philosophy and Poverty". In 2018, the workshop will be held at the University of Salzburg on 17 & 18 May 2018 and focus on the topic of "Poverty and the Family".

The invited speaker for this workshop is Jonathan Wolff (Oxford), who will give a talk on "Poverty, Social Expectations, and the Family".

We invite scholars to submit papers on any topic of philosophical inquiry into poverty. Possible topics include poverty as an issue of global or social justice, human rights and poverty, the ethical obligation of poverty alleviation and the design of poverty alleviation measures or philosophical issues in poverty measurement, the conception of poverty and poverty research.

Preference will be given to scholars in the earlier stages of their career and to papers that are related to the workshop topic of "Poverty and the Family". Possible topics for papers are, among others, the intergenerational transmission of poverty, inequalities between and within families, responsibilities towards poor families, parents and children, the relation between the family and the state, parental rights and duties under conditions of poverty, the ethical underpinnings of policy responses to family and child poverty, gender roles, patriarchy, intimate violence and poverty, or procreation in an radical unequal world and in times of severe poverty.

The workshop will run over two days and each speaker will have 75 minutes (about 25 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion). Draft papers are shared in advance and speakers can focus on the key points of their paper in the oral presentation. A peer-reviewed publication of selected papers is envisaged in an edited volume on the workshop topic in the Springer Book Series Philosophy and Poverty. We expect that particpants consider this option to publish their paper presented at the Workshop.

There is no conference fee. Coffee breaks and two lunches will be covered by the CEPR. Unfortunately we cannot offer any subsidy for travel and accommodation costs.

If you are interested in participating please submit an extended abstract of 750 words ready for blind review via the submission form on the workshop homepage. Deadline for submissions is 15 December 2017, and decisions will be communicated within two weeks. It is expected that draft versions of the papers are shared two weeks before the workshop.
