The Quantitative Justice conference aims to develop an open interdisciplinary discussion on addressing legal and ethical issues through formal and quantitative models and their computable implementations. Quantification promotes not only comprehensibility and computer based applications but also communication between cultures, and disciplines. Its roots can be found in different cultural traditions.In particular, the present edition will focus on Inference and Causality, and aims at investigating the extent to which formal and quantitative models can be brought to bear on issues pertaining to balancing interests and values of different individuals, social groups and institutions as well as to balancing different sources of information, in different legal, political or social contexts.

In particular, this edition of the conference focuses on aspects of inference and causality, conceptionalism and distributive justice, such as the following:

  • The emergence of the concepts of inference and causality in different philosophical, cultural, religious and legal traditions
  • Inference and causality, conceptionalism and justice in tort and criminal law.
  • Inference (or causality) and the assessment of evidence
  • Quantitative and non-quantitative models of inference, causality or (distributive) justice and fairness
  • Telelological arguments, goals, values and deontology in legal and moral thinking
  • Multicriteria decision-making and social choice
  • Proportionality in distributive and corrective justice
  • Balancing rights and values in moral and legal reasoning
