Call for Papers

The Canadian Section of the IVR

Meets on Zoom

Saturday May 30th, 2021

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.

Papers on subjects in moral, legal, and political philosophy are welcome. We especially encourage papers on important contemporary issues such as threats to democracy, dishonesty in politics, the climate emergency, and the growing inequality of wealth.
