1. Ferretti, Thomas. Justice requires egalitarian organizations : why public institutions should promote worker cooperatives.

Degree: 2016, Université Catholique de Louvain

I argue in this thesis that liberal egalitarian principles of justice require public institutions to promote egalitarian organizations such as workers cooperatives. In the first part, while adopting the general framework of liberal egalitarianism, I try to dissipate some ambiguities and to solve some problems within the theory. In the second part, I use these modifications to the theory to propose two arguments demonstrating that any system tolerating inegalitarian organizations will necessarily fail to correct all the unjust inequalities they create and thus fail to realize a fully just society. I demonstrate more specifically that Welfare State Capitalism, even in its strongest version, is always insufficient to realize all the requirements of justice. The first argument consists in demonstrating that a Strong Welfare State Capitalism may succeed in distributing income and capital fairly through taxation, but that it will fail to realize a just distribution of all other primary goods such as protection from domination, self-governing capacities, and self-respect. The second argument demonstrates that the redistributive policies supposed to correct unjust inequalities created by inegalitarian organizations are not stable over time. If these arguments are correct, it becomes necessary to promote egalitarian organizations to realize justice. In the third part, I apply this general argument to one specific case: the organization of production. I argue in favor of concrete public policies promoting specific types of worker cooperatives because they tend to create less inequality. But my argument also applies to other organizations in various sectors of the economy such as risk management, finance, consumption, housing and so on. The contribution of this thesis is to justify a System of egalitarian organizations in which public institutions would do what is necessary to promote egalitarian organizations in all sectors of the economy.

2. Aubert, Vincent. Essais sur Milton Friedman, le (néo)libéralisme et la RSE.

Degree: 2016, Université Catholique de Louvain

Milton Friedman was one of the most influential and controversial actors in the debates on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and, more generally, in the 20th century public debate. Through an inquiry on the concept of CSR and Friedman's moral theory, our thesis examines his position on CSR. In doing so, we contribute to the clarification of the neoliberal moral theory and conception of CSR. Milton Friedman's basic moral theory has rarely been studied in detail, which partly explains the lack of consensus on Friedman's conception of CSR. We begin this thesis by clarifying the concept of social responsibility and by defending a moralized version of this concept. We then propose two readings of Friedman's writings on CSR. We argue that the main message of these writings is that the efficient realization of a wide range of societal projects requires that individuals rationally pursue their conception of the good within an institutional framework consisting of coercive and non-coercive rules. Finally, we compare several readings of Friedman's moral and political theory and argue in favour of the superiority of a left-wing reading of this theory. Combined with our concept of social responsibility, this reading implies that the members of a society like ours behave in a socially responsible way by ensuring that they accomplish (at least some of) the actions that are (1) beyond the law and (2) required by an opportunity prioritarianism.

Milton Friedman fut un des acteurs les plus influents et les plus controversés du débat sur la responsabilité sociale des entreprises et, plus généralement, du débat public du second 20ème siècle. Au moyen d'une enquête consacrée au concept de responsabilité sociale ainsi qu'à la théorie morale de Friedman, notre thèse examine sa position au sujet de la responsabilité sociale des entreprises. Ce faisant, nous contribuons à l'élucidation de cet incontournable des débats contemporains qu'est le néolibéralisme. La théorie morale fondamentale de Milton Friedman a été très peu étudiée en détail et cette carence de la littérature académique explique en partie que celle-ci soit divisée sur la question de savoir quelle est la conception friedmanienne de la RSE. L’ambiguïté du concept de responsabilité sociale y est également pour beaucoup et cette thèse commence par défendre un concept de responsabilité sociale. Nous proposons ensuite deux lectures des écrits consacrés par Friedman à la RS des entreprises et, en fait, des individus. Nous soutenons que le message principal de ces écrits est que la réalisation efficace d'une vaste gamme de projets de société requiert que les individus poursuivent rationnellement leur conception du bien au sein d'un cadre institutionnel composé de règles coercitives et non-coercitives visant notamment la mise en œuvre du mécanisme du marché. Enfin, nous confrontons plusieurs lectures d'ensemble de la théorie morale et politique de Friedman et nous argumentons en faveur de la supériorité d'une lecture de gauche de…
