The focus of this symposium is Davd Brink's book manuscript Fair Opportunity, Responsibility, and Excuse. It engages with a range of issues relating to responsibility, culpability, and excuse at the intersection of moral psychology and criminal jurisprudence. 

The symposium will comprise a number of short pre-prepared commentaries to which Professor Brink will respond. Ample time will be devoted to discussion with the wider audience. 

A very limited number of attendee places are available. Those interested in attending should express their interest by 1 March to lisa.forsberg [at] Upon notification of acceptance you will be sent a full draft manuscript of the book which you should read in advance of the symposium.
