Michael Walzer, Professor Emeritus in the School of Social Science, spoke at the Paris Institute of Political Studies on March 15, 2018, in a talk titled "Freedom and Equality: Can the Two Stand Together?" Exploring the crucial link between freedom and equality, he said:

It makes it possible for men and women to join together and claim equal standing. Take political freedom away and equality becomes a lost project.”
