The Centre for Ethics presents Ethics at Noon

Liberalism, Commodification, and Justice

Vida Panitch, Department of Philosophy, Carleton University. Vida Panitch's research interests lie in the areas of distributive justice and bioethics. Her work explores the extent to which the concepts of equality, exploitation and commodification can serve as normative guides to the just distribution of health-related goods and services, both domestically and internationally. While her doctoral work addressed the normative foundations of liberal welfare programs geared to basic need satisfaction (including the need for health), her current work applies the concepts of equality, exploitation and commodification to assessing the moral permissibility (or impermissibility) of emerging commercial global health practices.


This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Ethics at 416 946-6288.
