Upcoming Annual Conference


27th - 29st March 2008

Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice, University of Nottingham, UK

CSSGJ will host the annual meeting of one of the principal associations in the field of contemporary political theory. The conference theme will be ‘global justice’ and will include keynote presentations by prominent thinkers in the area. The annual conference normally attracts around 100 participants.

The Association for Legal and Social Philosophy has been in existence since the early 1970s. Originally concentrating on running an annual conference around a theme of interest to social, moral and political philosophers and academic lawyers alike, and including a distinguished keynote speaker as Austin Lecturer, it has since broadened both its remit and its membership which now stands at about 150.

In particular, its journal, Res Publica - founded in 1995 - now published four times a year by Kluwer, attracts both contributors and readers internationally. Like the Association itself, Res Publica is concerned to bring together people from different academic disciplines around common moral, political and social and related legal issues in an accessible and public arena. Such interdisciplinary conversation - also furthered by the Association’s occasional regional workshops - is what distinguishes the journal and the ALSP alike. We welcome, and assist, postgraduates’ participation in conferences; and encourage them to publish in Res Publica.
