CFP: Incivility, Whistleblowing, and Disobedience – MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory, 8-10 September 2014

Call for Papers: Incivility, Whistleblowing, and Disobedience: Bad Citizenship or Democratic Dissent?

MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory – 8-10 September, 2014

The notion of ‘good citizenship’ and of related ideas of civic virtue, civility and political obligation have been extensively explored in recent decades by political theorists. By contrast, the contrary notion of ‘bad citizenship’ has received far less attention. With the possible exception of the literature on civil disobedience, political theorists have found little to say about uncitizenly behaviour, incivility and civic vice. This is a somewhat surprising omission given the seemingly more immediate practical relevance of considerations of bad citizenship to the experience of many contemporary liberal democratic societies. Similarly scant attention has been given to the ethics and legitimacy of whistleblowing in the context of democratic societies. The role of the whistleblower needs a thorough philosophical analysis since it lies between (depending on the stance one takes) understanding the act as that constituting bad or good citizenship. Recent revelations on NSA secrecy programme, as well as Wikileaks cables, testify to the extent secret services have reached, in the US and abroad, in their capacity of collecting citizens’ data, without proper mechanisms of accountability. A question arises whether these revelations should be considered legitimate instances of whistleblowing. read more...
