Political Theory and Global Justice Seminar Series
The Centre for Political Theory and Global Justice research seminar series brings together academics, research students and MA students working in the areas of political theory, international relations theory, international legal theory, philosophy and global ethics to create a vibrant and exciting research community. The series meets eight times per year and involves the presentation of current research by external speakers, departmental staff and doctoral students nearing the completion of their projects. The Centre is particularly interested in issues relating to debates about global justice and in regard to issues of global coexistence. The series welcomes and encourages research from all theoretical traditions and provides a distinctive opportunity for students to develop their interests in a supportive and diverse environment.
There is also a strong commitment to relating theoretical and normative issues to practical dimensions of political study, with a particular interest in how normative considerations relate to actual political practice and policy.
The Centre for Political Theory and Global Justice also organises the annual Warrender Public Lecture in which an external speaker of international reputation is invited to present a paper on a current global debate. Past speakers include: Thomas Pogge, Carol Pateman, Allen Buchanan, Robert Keohane, David Miller, Michael Doyle, David Held and Anne Phillips.
