Call for Papers: Gender on the International Bench, Oslo March 23-24

There is currently a marked gender inequality among the members of the international courts. Why is there this skewed representation, what – if anything –  is problematic with it – and what might be done to correct it?

The workshop is an activity of two major research centres that study international courts, based in Oslo and Copenhagen, and will take place in Oslo, Norway,  March 23-24 2017 .

Call for proposals – Redistribution and Recognition: Calling Paradigms of Justice into Question

Paper proposals are welcome for the Italian-French journée d’étude Redistribution and Recognition: Calling Paradigms of Justice into Question, funded by the French Embassy in Italy, which will be held at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Catania, Italy, on May 5, 2017.

Since 2009 the Department has been hosting scholars from all over the world within the Colloquium of Philosophy and Global Affairs of which the journée is part (see the whole program here). The journée d’étude aims at encouraging reflections about social justice by questioning the competing and yet perhaps complementary paradigms centered on redistribution and recognition. The philosophical reflection on these paradigms will be enriched by contributions from neighboring disciplines. Graduate students as well as junior and senior researchers are welcome to submit their work.

CFP: PPE Society Panel on Policy Epistemology

The newly formed Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) Society is hosting its first annual conference from March 16th to March 19th, 2017 in New Orleans. The conference contains a variety of panels, and we’re hosting one on policy epistemology. Policy epistemology concerns questions surrounding the ethics of belief and advocacy regarding public policy, especially with respect to those who formulate and implement policy. How much evidence does one require in order to justify an expansion of public health insurance? How high of an evidential bar must empirical evidence satisfy before it can justify legal restrictions, such as regulations on carbon emissions? How should we handle rational disputes about social scientific questions as they bear on public policy? For instance, how seriously should we take the fact that macroeconomic policy is the subject of enormous disputes between expert economists in formulating countercyclical policy? Does disagreement prevent government officials from implementing, say, Keynesian countercyclical economic policy?

CfP: New Springer Book Series: “Philosophy and Poverty”

“Philosophy and Poverty”, a new fully peer-reviewed book series published by Springer. The first volume is scheduled to be published in 2018. The book series is edited by Henning Hahn, Gottfried Schweiger and Clemens Sedmak, whose work is supported by an international Advisory Board. It is the first book series to focus exclusively on philosophical research on poverty, which is an area of increasing interest and high social and political importance. The book series is not restricted to issues of ethics and justice which dominate the philosophical research on poverty, but is also open to questions related to the philosophy of science, epistemology or history of philosophy insofar as they relate to poverty.
