The Paternalism, Health, and Public Policy Project, in partnership with the Ethox Centre, Oxford is pleased to announce its third workshop, on ‘Paternalism and Groups’.

The workshop will take place in-person at the Big Data Institute, University of Oxford. If you would like to attend, please email to register.

This workshop focuses on policies designed to promote the health of groups. We will investigate the extent to which such interventions can be carried out ‘against the will of’ or ‘for the sake of’ those subject to them, given the diversity of preferences and interests within large populations.


The workshop will also feature a roundtable discussion (details TBA).
