CfP – The Rise of Popular Nationalism: A Challenge for Global Justice?

The Political Studies Association Global Justice and Human Rights Specialist Group invites paper proposals for the 2017 Political Studies Association Annual Conference:

The Rise of Popular Nationalism: A Challenge for Global Justice?

Around the globe, nationalism as a popular doctrine is making a revival and is gaining electoral success. From Brexit to Trump to Putinism and conservative and nationalist Buddhism in Myanmar, nationalism is on the rise. This panel asks what challenges this trend poses for the prospects of global justice. Is the advancement on global governance and cooperation in areas such as development, climate change and migration jeopardized by the seemingly increasing popularity of bounded solidarities? What economic, social and structural factors can explain this development? Are we witnessing a truly global trend or is populism and nationalism regionally concentrated? Are we in the midst of a crisis of liberal cosmopolitanism? Can we reconcile local and regional identities with national and international solidarities?

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.
