Galactic justice quest: Designing a fair society on a new planet

Could we design a 'just' society on a new planet without knowing who we might be when we arrive?

Through interactive group work, thought experiments, and discussions, students will delve into the world of political decision-making, designing a society on a distant Earth-like planet that will (hopefully) be fair and equal. At the end of the week, a fun experiment will take place in which the group will test their simulated society with brand-new identities to see just how fair their new world is.

Will we create a just society for everyone? Will anyone be left behind? Sign up to Politics at Hands-on at Otago in 2025 to find out.
