The AESOP TG on Ethics, Values and Planning continues the conversation and debate on Wednesday 13 October 2021, from 5 to 6 pm (CET) with Ali Madanipour, Sabine Weck & Peter Schmitt on Overcoming the false dichotomy between procedural and distributive justice.

The discussion/conversation will start from a recently published article The concept of spatial justice and the European Union’s territorial cohesion by Ali Madanipour, Mark Shucksmith and Elizabeth Brooks in European Planning Studies and a manuscript under review by Sabine Weck and Peter Schmitt. Both studies address the false dichotomy between procedural and distributive justice through conceptualization of spatial justice and just planning and related policy evaluation and case study research. We aim for a condensed and vibrant discussion on the integration of procedural and distributive justice and its use in planning studies.
