Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Many debates over policing are, at their heart, questions about ethics, justice, and politics. What are the professional and moral responsibilities of police in a democratic society? What rules should govern officers in using force and other aspects of their jobs? How do current forms of policing contribute to systemic injustice? What does accountability mean in the context of policing? What are the most promising strategies to promote public safety consistent with justice—and do they include police? Philosophy, in conversation with other fields, offers tools to advance our understanding of policing and its role.
The Policing, Policy, and Philosophy Initiative (3PI) will explore these and related questions at its inaugural symposium on March 1, 2024. This virtual event showcases research at the intersection of policing and philosophy, with particular interest in work that has direct relevance to policy. Funding for the symposium is provided by the American Philosophical Association, Penn State Rock Ethics Institute, and Penn State Department of Philosophy.
