In his Plenary lecture titled Confusion in the Debate About Inequality, Dr. Leszek Balcerowicz (Former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of Poland) addressed the problem surrounding the inequality debate. According to him, one source of confusion is the failure to distinguish inequality of opportunity from inequality of situation (wealth, income etc.). While is it easy to agree on what is the ideal inequality of opportunity (none) there is no inter-subjective agreement on what is the ideal inequality of income (wealth).
Chaired by Prof. Mauro Calise, the panel gathered paper presenters from a group of PhD students who have studied political science at the Scuola Normale Superiore. Following Hyperpolitics methodology, each participant focused on a specific concept – citizenship, law, capitalism – using the same analytical pattern: a “matrix” of twelve logically interrelated keywords.
Organized by the Polish Political Science Association (PPSA), this special session focused on the vital topic of Academic Freedom and its limits.
