How Should We Conceptualise Equality

The purpose of this seminar was to introduce participants to a framework for equality developed by members of the Equality Studies Centre, University College Dublin.  This framework was recently published in ‘Equality: From Framework to Action by John Baker, Kathleen Lynch, Sarah Cantillon and Judy Walsh, 2004).  One of the book’s co-authors, John Baker, gave a concise but comprehensive overview of a framework for thinking about equality, one which invites us to look beyond the confines of liberal egalitarianism towards equality of condition. 

Participants had the opportunity to comment on and/or clarify issues relating to the framework and then engaged in a workshop, applying the framework to a particular social group.  This was a useful exercise and there was a general consensus that this particular framework is a valuable tool for thinking about equality.  The event was well attended by individuals from both statutory and community/voluntary sectors as well as representatives from the academy.
