The Political Quarterly is pleased to invite you to our Annual Lecture:
'Why equality needs no justification'
A defining characteristic of modernity is meant to be that humans recognise each other as fundamentally equal. That’s a nice thought – but is it true?
In this year’s annual lecture, 'Why equality needs no justification', Professor Anne Phillips will argue that basic ideas of human equality are more fragile that meets the eye. Phillips, who is the Graham Wallas Professor of Political Science at the London School of Economics, will also explore the dangers of treating equality as conditional upon supposedly shared human characteristics.
Join us on 6 December 2021 at Bush House, London, for what promises to be a stimulating live debate about the true nature of equality.
We look forward to seeing you in person again.
