On January 13 2020 prof. Rutger Claassen of Utrecht University will be visiting the Amsterdam Law School for a CSECL Lecture. Rutger Claassen is Professor of Political Philosophy & Economic Ethics at the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies of Utrecht University. His research is in the field of socio-economic justice, where he defends a version of the capability approach – pioneered by economist Amartya Sen and philosopher Martha Nussbaum, which focuses on the development of personal capabilities instead of material resources as the central criterion for a just society. In his monograph ‘Capabilities in a Just Society. A Theory of Navigational Agency’ (Cambridge University Press, 2018) he argues for a capability approach centered on a notion of autonomous agency.
