Individual Character and Structural Injustice
Thursday, May 27, 5:30 pm ET
This is a Zoom event. Registration is required HERE.
We live in a time when structural injustices and systemic problems abound, in public health, race relations, gender relations, and more. Policymakers and activists propose structural solutions targeting systems as a whole, like a sugar tax, liability insurance for police, school desegregation, or paid family leave. Policy solutions seldom include suggestions that moral and psychological traits of individuals are at fault or should be the focus of change, like moral education, empathy cultivation, or prejudice and bias reduction.
The Marc Sanders Foundation and the PPE Society invite you to this panel where the central question will be discussed: Is there a role for interventions targeting individual moral character or psychology to address at least some of the “structural” problems that we face?
Hosted by Barry Lam, Associate Director of MSF and host of Hi-Phi Nation podcast.
