The Politics of Marriage

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 31st Jan 2018

Marriage is an odd mix of sex, religion, and politics. Our speakers ask what marriage is and whether there is there any distinctive moral value in it. Should the state promote it? Is it possible to have an ‘equal’ marriage, or is marriage fundamentally an oppressive institution? Should marriage be rejected in favour of civil partnerships, or something else, or perhaps nothing else?

Clare Chambers is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, University of Cambridge.

Paul Coleridge is a former high court judge and Chairman, The Marriage Foundation.

Peter Tatchell (@PeterTatchell) is an activist and Director of the Peter Tatchell Foundation.

Sarah Fine (@DrSJFine) is Fellow, The Forum and Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, King’s College London.

The Forum for European Philosophy (@ForumPhilosophy) is an educational charity that organises a full and varied programme of philosophy and interdisciplinary events in the UK.
