Event description

Description

What can we learn from African Political Philosophies, and 'Ubuntu' in particular? How can Ubuntu transform our ideas about justice? More generally, how can we meaningfully enter into conversations with views outside 'mainstream' political philosophy? This pre-HDCA conference event brings established and emerging African scholars together to introduce and explore key concepts in African Philosophies as they apply to issues of justice. Papers explore themes such as: human rights, corporate social responsibility, health, rectification, corruption, economic distribution, and others. As such, the event provides opportunities for capability scholars and practitioners to learn about these ideas, and to reflect on the way that these ideas are able to transform capability scholarship and practice.

Confirmed Keynotes: Prof Thaddeus Metz (UJ), Dr Motsamai Molefe (UKZN), Dr Uchenna Okeja (Rhodes).

Invited Graduate Students: Motlatsi Khosi (UNISA), Khali Mofuoa (UJ), Wade Seale (UCT), Tony Shabangu (UJ), Tlhogi Swaratlhe (UJ).

Participation in the event is free. Please see below for the full progam for the event.

For any queries, please contact Dr. Krushil Watene (k.watene@massey.ac.nz).
