Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen: Affirmative Action: The Key Arguments


Professor Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen, Department of Political Science, Århus University.

Abstract

Many think affirmative action is (un)justified. But does it really make sense to have views about affirmative action at this general level? After some reflections on the nature of affirmative action, what it means to justify it, and the key (un)justifying arguments, I take a critical look at two core objections: the reverse discrimination and the stigma objection. The talk draws on my forthcoming OUP book (March 2020).

No registration is needed. Welcome to the Institute for Futures Studies, Holländargatan 13 in Stockholm!
