Call for Papers

The Canadian Section of the IVR

Meets as an affiliate of the CPA
The University of British Columbia

Vancouver, British Columbia 

Friday, May 31, 2019

The Canadian Section of the IVR (International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy) accepts papers devoted to subjects in law and legal theory and moral and political philosophy. Submitted papers (and commentaries on them) are circulated (password protected) via the IVR Website (http://phil.uregina.ca/cs-ivr) and the authors and commentators briefly summarize their points to open discussions at the meeting. See http://phil.uregina.ca/cs-ivr/about.html for further information about CS:IVR meetings.

The theme for this year's meeting is the same as that of the International Association, which meets in Lucerne, Switzerland (July 7-13): Dignity, Democracy, Diversity. However, papers on other subjects in moral, legal, and political philosophy are also welcome.
