Association for Social and Political Philosophy

ASPP Annual Conference, 24-26th June 2019

Hosted by the Politics Department at Newcastle University

Theme: Justice in Times of Austerity, Rupture, and Polarisation 

We welcome papers in any area of social and political philosophy, and particularly encourage papers offering normative or evaluative perspectives addressed to the contemporary political climate - papers concerned with justice in or in response to the context of countries reducing public expenditure and/or budget deficits, rising inequality, attitudes and parties veering towards political extremes, declining political civility, and both states and supra-state institutions facing schisms and separatist movements. This could include topics such as:

  • Social and economic policy
  • Disadvantage and inequality
  • Political ruptures
  • Democratic crisis and renewal
