Review of "A Philiosophical Examination of Social Justice and Child Poverty" in Ethical Theory and Moral Practice
Alex Bagattini reviews our book "A Philiosophical Examination of Social Justice and Child Poverty" (published open access by Palgrave Macmillan 2015) in the journal Ethical Theory and Moral Practice. Unfortunately the review is behind a paywall. He raises some important points - our book is certainly not the end but the beginning of a longer discussion on child poverty, the capability approach, and social justice for children. He sums up: "The book by Schweiger and Graf is an inspiring reading for all those interested in the topic of child poverty. Its main virtues are: first, it applies the CA to the specific situation of children, which is still a theoretically underdeveloped domain in the theory of justice. Secondly, it links the theory of justice to child poverty."
