My collegue Jeremy Williams is organising two cracking conferences this summer here at Birmingham. The first one of these, Ethics, War and Intervention, will be on Friday the 30th of May. The keynote at this conference will be Jeff McMahan (Rutgers) who will be talking about ‘The Ethics of Humanitarian Intervention: With Comments on Syria’. There's also a call for abstracts for this conference (deadline: 21st of March; see more information about this conference HERE). The second conference is called New Directions in Public Reason and this one will be on Monday the 16th and Tuesday the 17th of June. The speakers at this conference include Gerald Gaus (Arizona) and Fabienne Peter (Warwick) amongst others. If you are interested in this conference, please see HERE.
