The MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory is an annual conference at the University of Manchester on selected topics in political theory. Each session will consist of a reading and discussion of 3-12 selected papers. The present CFP invites full paper submissions for a session on “ideal” and “nonideal theory.” Potential paper topics include (but are by no means limited to) the following: What is the proper role of “ideal theorizing” in political theory? How well do existing ideal theories apply to nonideal conditions? Should nonideal theory be guided by, or independent of, ideal theory? If nonideal theory should be guided by ideal theory, how?
