The Social Justice and Public Ethics Research Cluster recently hosted a Summer School on Methods and Approaches in Normative Political Theory/Philosophy.

Running from July 4-15th, participants on the programme include postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers from Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Singapore, Switzerland and the UK. In addition to discussing their own research, students participated in classes led by leading political theorists from Toronto, Duke, Oxford, Leeds, Manchester, UCD and TCD, on topics such as Kant’s political thought, theories of rights, representation, disability, public reason, collective duties, intuition pumps, ideal and non-ideal theory, and climate change. Organised by Adina Preda and Andrew Shorten, the Summer School was supported by the European Consortium of Political Research and by its Standing Groups on Political Theory and Kantian Political Thought
