The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) at the University of Salzburg and the Austrian chapter of Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP) are happy to announce the call for papers (PDF of the cfp) for their 2016 Workshop in Philosophy and Poverty. The workshop will be held at the University of Salzburg on May 12 and 13, 2016. Monique Deveaux (U of Guelph) is the invited speaker for this workshop.   We invite scholars to submit papers on any topic within the realm 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 careers and to papers that are related to the topic of the talk of the invited speaker. In 2016 Monique Deveaux (University of Guelph) will be the invited speaker with a paper on: "Global Justice from Below?: The Value of Social Movement Approaches to Poverty Reduction". The workshop will run over two days and each speaker will have 75 minutes (about 35 minutes for presentation and 40 minutes for discussion). 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, but accommodation at a hotel next to the venue can be offered at a reduced rate.
