Study Cycle #3: Environmental Ethics for Lawyers

June 28 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. – 3rd virtual meeting via Zoom

Program: Intergenerational Justice: African Perspectives by Ernest-Marie Mbonda (Professor at the Université des Montagnes, Bangangté, Cameroon)

The issue of intergenerational justice raises questions that are arguably common to all human cultures and are becoming increasingly important in contemporary ethics. This presentation focuses on an African perspective on current issues of intergenerational justice. It draws on African ethnological and philosophical literature as well as on data obtained from a relatively recent survey conducted in Cameroon, on questions concerning the notion of generation, the generations involved (near or distant generations, previous or future generations), the nature and size of things to be guaranteed for other generations, and the justifications for intergenerational duties.

Ernest-Marie Mbonda is Professor at the Université des Montagnes, Bangangté, Cameroon, and Associate Professor at the Catholic University of Central Africa (Yaoundé, Cameroon) and at the University of Moncton (Canada). His research interests include social and political justice, ethno-cultural justice, African philosophy and decolonial thought. He has published, among others, Une décolonisation de la pensée. Études de philosophie afrocentrique (Paris, Sorbonne Université Presses, 2021).

Presentation of the study cycle : This series of lectures on the theme of “Environmental Ethics for Lawyers” aims to bring together the views of a philosopher and a lawyer on two specific topics in their respective fields of expertise. Each conference lasts two hours and includes a time for discussion between speakers and participants on the societal issues addressed. The cycle is the result of an initiative of three partner institutions (IRENEE, Archives H. Poincaré / UL, Chaire Normandie pour la Paix) and will take place over two academic years (20/21 and 21/22).

Presentation of the study cycle : Under the scientific direction of Jochen Sohnle, Professor of Public Law UL / IRENEE, Christophe Bouriau, Professor of Philosophy UL / Archives Poincaré, in partnership with the Normandy Chair for Peace and its general coordinator, Emilie Gaillard, MCF HDR in Private Law, SciencesPo Rennes / ARENES UMR 6051
