Workshop: Global Justice and Activist Political Theory

Wednesday February 8th 2012, University of Southampton

10:30 – 4:00.

The department of Politics and International Relations is delighted to host a one-day workshop on Lea Ypi’s new book Global Justice and Avant-Garde Political Agency (Oxford University Press, 2012). In the book, Ypi argues for an engaged, ‘activist’ brand of political theory, uniting the concerns of ideal and non-ideal theory, and applies the method of activist political theory to the global justice debate.

The workshop comprises critical responses to the book by Stuart White (University of Oxford), David Owen (University of Southampton) and David Miller (University of Oxford), with a reply by Lea Ypi (London School of Economics).

The event organiser is Chris Armstrong (Southampton). There is no charge for attendance, but if you would like to attend please let Chris know in advance (email ca’at’soton.ac.uk).
