After five successful meetings on previous years, we now welcome paper proposals for the sixth Meetings on Ethics and Political Philosophywhich will be held at University of Minho, Braga (Portugal), on June 8-9, 2015.

We invite contributions in both moral philosophy and normative political theory. The Meetings provide an excellent opportunity to present both advanced and exploratory work in front of an open and welcoming audience. The call is open to graduate students, junior researchers and senior scholars.

This year, we will have two keynote speakers:  

Prof. Samuel Scheffler (NYU) will offer a lecture entitled “Why Worry about Future Generations?”

And

Prof. Simon Caney (Oxford) will offer a lecture on “Global Injustice and the Rights of Necessity and Resistance.”

Abstracts: we will have a special section on cosmopolitan challengeswith some prospects of publishing a selection of papers as a special issue in an academic journal in the field. If you are interested in presenting a paper in this section, please write “cosmopolitanism” before the title.


If you are interested in presenting a paper on a topic of your choice for other panels, please write “general” before the title.

For all abstracts:  send your contact and affiliation, an abstract (300 to 500 words) and 5 key words, by January 31st to João Cardoso Rosas (rosas(at)ilch.uminho.pt) and David Alvarez (alvarez (at)ilch.uminho.pt). Abstracts will be submitted to peer-review.
