The Centre for the Study of Global Ethics at Birmingham is pleased to announce its fourth annual conference, on the question of whether, given the rising tide of nationalism, declining support for human rights, and currents of anti-intellectualism and anti-elitism, we are on our way to a post-liberal world.

As in previous years, the conference will feature both invited keynote speakers, speakers selected from a Call For Papers, and a public lecture.

Confirmed keynote speakers are:

  • Alison Jaggar (Distinguished Professor of Research, University of Birmingham; Arts and Sciences Professor of Distinction, University of Colorado Boulder)
  • Jason Stanley (Jacob Urowsky Professor of Philosophy, Yale University)
  • Ryoa Chung (Associate Professor Philosophy, Université de Montréal)

The annual public lecture will be delivered by Jonathan Wolff (Blavatnik Chair in Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford), on the theme of Social Inequality and Structural Injustice.

For more information on the conference, the Call for Abstracts (now open, deadline 10 February 2018), and information on registration for the conference and public lecture, please visit the Global Ethics conference website.
