Justice from an interdisciplinary perspective

21.08.2013
What is justice? Internationally renowned natural and social scientists will discuss their views on justice at the annual conference of the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) on 24th October 2013.

What is justice? According to which criteria do we judge whether something is just or unjust? What different concepts of justice are there? Which insights can the humanities, behavioral and social sciences contribute to this debate?

This year, PRIF’s annual conference discusses the different notions and theories of justice. Internationally renowned natural and social scientists will present their perspectives on justice during two panels.

Primatologist and behavioral scientist Professor Frans de Waal (Emory University, Atlanta) and neurobiologist Professor Joachim Bauer (University of Freiburg) will offer insights on the role of justice from a natural scientific perspective. Professor Klaus Günther (Cluster of Excellence "The Formation of Normative Orders" at Frankfurt University) will comment on their presentations.

Panel II will focus on the social sciences: Sociologist Professor Stefan Liebig (University of Bielefeld) and political scientist Professor Cecilia Albin (Uppsala University, Department of Peace and Conflict Research) will introduce results of empirical work on justice on social and political behavior, which will be commented on by Professor Nicole Deitelhoff (PRIF Research Group "Contested Normativity: Norm Conflicts in Global Governance").

In their summary, Professor Richard Ned Lebow (King's College London) and PRIF’s executive director Professor Harald Müller will reflect on the ideas presented. What conclusions can be drawn for peace research and PRIF’s research program "Just Peace Governance"?

The conference will be held in English.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
