Each year, the North American Society for Social Philosophy (NASSP) honors the best book published in social philosophy during the previous year. The Book Award Committee invites you to nominate a book to compete for the award for 2016. (For the purposes of this award, a book’s eligibility is determined by the year of its copyright rather than by the year of its release.)
The Award will be conferred on a book published in 2016 that makes the most significant contribution to social philosophy. The field is to be construed broadly, to include social and political philosophy, philosophy of law, philosophy of social science, and social ethics. Excluded are anthologies, historical studies, works on ethics that lack a distinctly social component, and works on a social topic that lack a substantial philosophical component.
The Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen is seeking to appoint a post-doc in Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy.

The Refugee Crisis after 2015
Since the peak of the refugee crisis in Europe in 2015, attention has shifted from internal burden-sharing mechanisms, such as a quota system, to externalising the border, such as the Turkey-EU deal, and to security concerns following a series of terror attacks. Whereas the question of whether the “crisis” is really a crisis for Europe, for the world or for refugees themselves still highlights the global failings in protecting the rights of refugees, the post-2015 developments throw up new issues. The intensifying human rights critique against Turkey questions how refugees’ and other migrants’ human rights are protected, beyond the right to asylum as such. Refugees’ rights are also being restricted within Europe in order to deter prospective asylum seekers.
