On 9 September 2016 Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) together with Danish embassy in Latvia organized a public lecture on “Equality and distribution” presented by Professor Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen. Most egalitarians, e.g. John Rawls, have focused on the distribution of social and economic goods. Recently, they have been criticized by relational egalitarians for this focus. What matters, according to the latter, is that people relate to one another as equals. But perhaps such relations presuppose a distribution of social and economic goods that is not too unequal? So perhaps the two forms of egalitarianism can be reconciled? That this is the case is what lecturer argued in his talk.
