NYU Conference on Valuing Lives

Valuing Lives: A Conference on Ethics in Health and the Environment
March 5, 2011
New York University

Various policy issues in environmental and health-related matters force policymakers to trade human lives against other values. We are bringing together scholars from philosophy, law and economics for a one-day conference to discuss whether and how this can be done in a morally permissible manner. The conference will feature original, unpublished papers of high quality.

Registration is now open at
