Media are invited to attend. Professor Mills is also available for interviews.

“Racial justice” is a term widely used in everyday discussions, but little explored in philosophy. In this paper, Mills looks at racial justice as a concept, trying to bring out its complexities, and urging a greater engagement by mainstream political philosophers with the issues that it raises.
