Fairness is an indispensable value. Human beings care about it deeply. A sense of fairness is the glue that binds societies together.
But what is fairness? What does it mean in the 21st century? How fair is the EU?

Science can help us answer such questions.

This lecture will examine the different dimensions and various drivers of fairness and pose questions relevant to policy-makers and the wider society.

Europe is now witnessing a growing movement of policy labs and other public innovation teams at EU, national, regional and local levels of governance. Their experimental, creative and citizen-centred approaches are changing the ways policies are shaped and delivered, putting forward alternative solutions in a time when our institutions require more robust and adaptable responses to complex situations.
