We invite researchers and graduate students to submit paper proposals for general sessions. Papers on any topics in the areas of legal philosophy, political philosophy, ethics, and applied ethics in a broad sense are welcome, but papers on topics related to the conference’s theme are particularly considered. Panel proposals on any topics in these areas are also invited.
