III seminar: Prioritarianism in Practice
Professor Matthew Adler, Richard A. Horvitz Professor of Law and Professor of Economics, Philosophy and Public Policy, Duke University

Professor Francisco Ferreira, Amartya Sen Professor of Inequality Studies and LSE III Director

“Prioritarianism in Practice” is an international group of scholars who aim to develop the theory and application of prioritarianism. This group has just published a substantial volume, Prioritarianism in Practice, including both theoretical chapters and chapters covering the application of prioritarianism to various policy domains (taxation, health care, fatality risk regulation, climate change, education, and the COVID-19 pandemic) and its use in measuring social progress. Professor Adler, one of the volume’s editors, will give an overview of the book. Professor Ferreira, a co-author of the chapter on “Equality of Opportunity,” will discuss how prioritarianism can be extended to take account of individual responsibility.
