CFA: Political Theory and the European Union, MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory

MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory, University of Manchester, 1st – 3rd September 2015

Giulia Bistagnino (University of Milan),
Pamela Pansardi (University of Pavia),

The workshop aims at bringing together scholars interested in the normative dimension of the European Union.
Political theory has traditionally been concerned with nation-states and their institutions, while more recently its scope has been widening by tackling questions about the global world. The EU, understood as a sort of intermediate entity of a distinctive nature, has become a prominent object of research to reflect on political problems. Today, the financial and political crises taking place in Europe have shown not only the vulnerability of EU’s institutions, but also the urgency to provide conceptual and normative tools to assess the EU and evaluate its decisions. Indeed, since the creation of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and the establishment of the Maastricht Treaty, the focus of EU integration has been set on legal and economic aspects only and academic discourses have been trapped into technical and economical debates with little attention for normative issues. A reflection on the nature and scope of the EU and an assessment of its problems and dilemmas is thus pressing and represents a fundamental task for normative political theory. read more...

CFP: Power and Freedom, MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory

MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory, University of Manchester, 4th – 6th September 2013

Peter Morriss (National University of Ireland – Galway)
Pamela Pansardi (University of Pavia)
Co-sponsored with IPSA Research Committee on Political Power (RC36).

The workshop aims at bringing together scholars interested in the definition of the concepts of power, domination and freedom, as well as in the analysis of their mutual relations.
In contemporary analytical political theory, very few studies have concentrated specifically on the study of power, and very little attention has been devoted to it in more general attempts to produce normative theories of society. However, the quite recent diffusion of Philip Pettit’s idea of ‘freedom as non-domination’ has belatedly – and partially – renewed the interest in the definition of power, in particular on the part of those scholars interested in defining the unfreedom-engendering implications of power. One of the aims of this panel is then to bring power back in the philosophical debate, and to discuss and analyze its role in normative political theory. Another is to think about freedom in relation to power rather than in isolation from it. read more...
