Call for Papers: Epistemic Perspectives on Democracy and the Market

MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory

Manchester

7th – 9th September 2016

Conveners: Michael Bennett (University of York) & Jonathan Benson (University of Manchester)

This workshop aims to stimulate a productive dialogue between those working on epistemic arguments for and against democracy and the market. We welcome papers focused exclusively on epistemic democracy, papers focused exclusively on epistemic arguments for markets, and papers which bring the two debates together.

Alongside the tradition of epistemic democracy there is an opposing tradition, including Hayekian economics, of epistemic arguments for markets. Both traditions reject idealised epistemic assumptions such as normative certainty and agreement (common in ideal theorising about justice) and perfect information (common in neoclassical economics). Instead, epistemic perspectives take the reality of ignorance and uncertainty as the starting point for institutional design, and place the creation, communication and use of knowledge at the centre of their analysis.

CFP: The Ethics of Immigration in a Non-Ideal World

Call for Papers: “The Ethics of Immigration in a Non-Ideal World”, Moral Philosophy & Politics 2016/2

Moral Philosophy & Politics invites contributions to a special issue that focuses on how the ethics of immigration should address non-ideal conditions, including background injustice, non-compliance by individual states and persons, as well as constraints on the political feasibility of ideally just immigration policies. The focus is on both normative questions that occur only due to non-ideal circumstances and on the impact non-ideal reasoning can have on ideal theory within the ethics of immigration.
