Reparations: An Interdisciplinary Examination

The Department of Philosophy and the Forum for Philosophy and Public Policy
at Queen's University in Canada are pleased to announce a conference,
"Reparations: An Interdisciplinary Examination of Some Philosophical
Issues", to be held on the Queen's campus from February 6-8, 2004. Coming
from five continents, the well-known group of speakers will draw on their
diverse expertise and experiences as economists, lawyers, philosophers,
political theorists, psychologists, public policy specialists and
representatives of NGOs to examine a range of philosophical issues
pertaining to four different reparations cases: reparations for victims of
war, reparations for indigenous peoples, reparations for victims of
colonialism, and reparations for victims of slavery. For more information,
