After an introduction to the foundational debates on the notion of 'justice' in normative theory (e.g universalism versus relativism, deontology versus consequentionalism, monism versus value pluralism) we concentrate on the following contemporary contested issues (both nationally and internationally):
(1) Cultural diversity and moral universalism: How to reconcile the claim of 'universal human rights' with the fact of cultural, ethnic and religious diversity?
(2) Social equality: What is a 'fair' and 'just' distribution of socio-economic goods?
(3) Democracy: What are the challenges of (neoliberal) globalization and populism to the idea of democracy?

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
