Pluralism seems to be a permanent feature of the modern social landscape. People are attached to distinct visions of the good life, value, purpose, obligation and human nature, and disagreements amongst them are often both deep and intractable. This predicament raises a difficulty for those theories of justice which aspire to consensus over the principles framing the political order. This one-day conference will examine recent theoretical responses to this quandary.


The Political Form of a Republican Constitution: Public Reason and the Balance of Power – Richard Bellamy (UCL)

Deliberation in the Context of Cultural Difference - Clare Chambers and Phil Parvin (Cambridge)
