LANGE, Jahel Queralt. Las políticas del liberalismo igualitario: justicia rawslsiana vs justicia dworkiniana. Diacrítica [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.2, pp.42-65. ISSN 0807-8967.

The current debate among liberal egalitarians is often seen as a discussion without practical implications. Non-philosophers tend to object that the different theoretical positions do not translate into different proposals about how to organize our life together. This accusation has been, in part, motivated by the fact that liberal egalitarians discuss at the level of principles ignoring, most of the time, the implications for the institutional design of adopting different versions of the liberal egalitarian idea of justice. This article wants to fill this void. It analyzes the two main liberal egalitarian conceptions of justice, John Rawls’ democratic equality and Ronald Dworkin’s equality of resources, focusing on the institutions that each one of them justifies. The comparison explores the three following elements: 1) protection of basic liberties; 2) economic institutions; 3) health care.

Palavras-chave : Liberal egalitarianism; Rawls; Dworkin; democratic equality; equality of resources; institutional design.
