PY Neron and Sandrine Blanc: Ethics of corporations.
15.30-17.00 (Stijlkamer Janskerkhof (0.06), JKH 13)

Corporations, their particular form of governance and work relations have been the subject of much contemporary scrutiny. Many have note the deleterious impact of shareholder governance, hierarchies and managerial authority on employees' work and social lives. During this colloquium, we will explore and discuss the ambition and resources of two contemporary theories of justice, liberal egalitarian and relational egalitarian, for addressing the pressing issue raised by contemporary corporate governance and managerial practices. A brief summary of the main ideas of each approach will be given — building notably on arguments from the background readings — and further ideas presented regarding where discussions could usefully be heading to.

Dorothea Gadeke: Who Should Fight Domination?
15.30-17.00 (Stijlkamer Janskerkhof (0.06), JKH 13)

This paper has three sections; I would like to focus more on the latter parts but since they all build on one another, it might be hard to understand the latter parts if the first part (section 2) is not read. But I presented a full paper on the argument in section 2 in the lunch lecture in September. So those who heard that and don't want to read it all could also start in section 3. The others can skip whatever they find the least interesting.

Yara Al Salman: Defending Common Property.
15.30-17.00 (Stijlkamer Janskerkhof (0.06), JKH 13)

My colloquium paper is a draft of the second chapter of my thesis. My thesis, as you may know, is about common property regimes. This particular chapter is about what property is and what an evaluative theory of property should look like.

All comments are more than welcome. What would be most helpful for me is a discussion of the second section, because it discusses (very briefly) the general approach I'll take for my entire thesis. This is also the part that continues to get amended as I do more research on philosophical property theories and on specific case studies. If I could get your input on that, it would really help me to focus my research questions, or change them, or add more questions to them. Thank you in advance!
