CFP: Policing and Prisons (November 1st Deadline)

Policing and Prisons: Ethical and Political Questions about Law Enforcement and Incarceration 

The Bowling Green Workshop in Applied Ethics and Public Policy will take place in Bowling Green, Ohio, March 11th-12th, 2015. Our keynote speaker is Douglas Husak (Rutgers). Those interested in presenting a paper are invited to submit a 2-3 page abstract (double-spaced) by November 1st2015

We welcome submissions in all areas relevant to this year’s conference theme: the ethics of policing and imprisonment. We are especially seeking papers that address normative questions about police conduct, the limits of the criminal law, appropriate prison sentences, and the like. We will consider multiple approaches to the topic, not merely in legal and political philosophy, but also in normative ethics, metaethics, and applied ethics. 

Only one submission per person is permitted. Abstracts will be evaluated by a program committee and decisions will be made in December 2015. Please direct all abstracts and queries to: Molly Gardner,

Further information about the Workshop and previous workshops are available on the workshop website:
