European Consortium of Political Research (ECPR) Summer School on Methods in Normative Political Theory/Philosophy: Political Epistemology



European Consortium of Political Research (ECPR) Summer School on Methods in Normative Political Theory/Philosophy: Political Epistemology

The ECPR Kantian Standing Group organise series of summer schools on methods in normative political theory/philosophy. Previous schools were organised in 2014 (Keele), 2015 (Keele – organised jointly with the Political Theory Standing Group) and 2016 (Limerick – organised jointly with the Political Theory Standing Group). This year the summer school will take place at the University of Siegen, organised as a collaboration of Keele University and the University of Siegen.
The School gives 15 graduate students and postdoctoral researchers working in the field of moral and political theory/philosophy a unique opportunity to exchange research and teaching ideas with colleagues from other universities and research institutes.
The narrative of the Summer School’s theme and other details about the event may be found on our websites:
