Over the course of this two-day conversation, we will explore together whether articulating a concept of Human Rights Economics can help strengthen the human rights community’s contribution to economics. We will consider what elements human rights brings to light that could be integrated in a new, human rights, branch of economics. We will reflect on whether this approach is the best way towards instituting an ethics-based, human rights-consistent economy. We envisage this conversation as an opportunity to step aside from institutional considerations, to liberate ourselves from the strictures of “what is feasible,” so as to ask “what is desirable?” and “how do we achieve it?"
Participation is by invitation only.
