Topic areas


Worldwide suffering caused by large-scale famine as well as poverty, human rights violations, military interventions or environmental degradation have a global dimension, because those responsible are not only individuals, but also states and international institutions. Recently, what some have perceived as global injustices related to military interventions and economic exploitation seem to motivate terrorist and piracy attacks that cause indiscriminate suffering. Having gained an unprecedented urgency, the topic of global justice has received increasingly public and academic attention, and has lately become a central issue in moral and political philosophy. Our conference seeks to be a forum for discussing the most important theories of global justice, their central concepts and constraints.

Submission of papers
Contributions are expected from researchers from different academic fields who are interested in the outlined topic or in closely related ones. Abstracts should be sent by e-mail as attachment at [email protected] until the 30th of January 2012. The deadline for submitting the full version of your paper is the 1st of  March 2012. Along with the abstract, please send us your contact details: current affiliation, address and telephone number. The organizers cannot support any travel or accommodation costs.


The organizers intend to publish a volume including papers from the conference. Acceptance of the paper for the conference does not guarantee the inclusion in the proceedings. We kindly remind you that by submitting the paper you implicitly agree to allow its publication in the conference proceedings. For easier post-conference editorial work, it would be best if you would format your paper using Chicago style of reference, but this is not a formal condition for the publication.

The Conference will be held at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Bucharest. Address: Splaiul Independentei 204, Sector 6, postcode 060024, Bucharest, Romania.
