How can risks affecting large parts of society be managed justly and the burdens shouldered equitably across society? What are fair and sustainable arrangements for risk sharing? How can (social) insurance schemes be re-designed to better accomplish this task? Two recent developments, one theoretical and one political, mo-tivate us to convene a MANCEPT workshop on these questions: First, following a surge in interest in risk by ethicists, political philosophers have recently begun to consider the normative implications of risk from a decidedly political point of view. Second, various technological and social changes put pressure on some long-standing risk-sharing arrangements, both in the public and private realm. The goal of our workshop is to explore how new theoretical advances in the political philosophy of risk can help us to understand, criticise and shape the far-reaching transformations of social insurance systems and other social risk-sharing mechanisms.


Convenors: Jakob Moggia (Technical University of Munich), Yunmeng Cai (University of Oxford), Friedemann Bieber (University of Zurich)
