Hosted by the Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law (CISRUL)

at the University of Aberdeen

Equality, slogan of choice in heady moments such as the 1790s and the 1960s, recedes into the background at other times like our present. All the more reason to ask, now, what ideas of equality there are, and whether there are equalities in practice. Ideas and practices of equality have, no doubt, been around for ever. Hunter-gatherers are often said to be egalitarian. Being equal in the eyes of God has for long been important to Judaeo-Christian traditions. But the workshop will focus on the ideas of equality associated with citizenship, with civil society and with rule of law. Citizenship, civil society and rule of law all include notions of equality, but it is far from clear what notions of equality, how they relate to each other, and what they do in practice. There are, to begin with, many notions of equality. For example, citizenship and rule of law share a notion of being equal as individuals in spite of other differences. One votes as a citizen rather than as a women, indigenous person or aristocrat, and one faces judgement as a legal subject equal to other legal subjects. But we will discuss, among other things, how the equality of citizens and equality before the law relate to each other, and how they stand in relation to other kinds of equality and inequality, such as the substantive distribution of rights, the socioeconomic disparities that concerned T.H. Marshall, access to the justice system, and cultural recognition. We will also ask how equality plays out in civil society, which has been accused of being unrepresentative and elitist yet often invokes some kind of equality as its objective.

Please download the detailed CfP for the workshop and PhD summer school from the Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law website at www.abdn.ac.uk/cisrul Prospective speakers and PhD students may apply for funding to cover their expenses.

Those who have already agreed to participate include James Collins, Pilar Domingo, Ajay Gudavarthy, Hilary Homans, Sasha Roseneil and Claire Wallace.

The Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law (CISRUL) aims to produce conversation across the social sciences and humanities on key concepts of the modern polity. Citizenship, civil society and rule of law are three such key concepts, all three of some pedigree but enjoying a new lease of life, prescribed by bodies such as IMF and United Nations, championed by social movements, and debated in the media and in academic research. We are also interested in related concepts such as democracy, human rights, multiculturalism and pluralism. Please visit www.abdn.ac.uk/cisrul for a description of the Centre's mission, staff and activities. Note that we are offering PhD studentships starting 2011-12.
