Problems in Political Theory: State to Republic

POL 511

Info tab content
Statehood proper requires citizens to know how roughly they stand relative to authorities and other citizens. But what is needed if the state is to be a just republic? First, demands of civic or democratic justice on the standing citizens ought to have vis-à-vis the authorities under decision-maker law; second, demands of social justice on the standing they ought vis-à-vis one another under decision-taker law. On the first count, we explore issues in constitutional and democratic theory; on the second, questions related to distributive justice in general and some particular areas like labor justice and criminal justice.
