The Stockholm Centre is pleased to announce its 4th Annual Reading Retreat, which is co-hosted by the Research School for Social Sciences at ANU. The retreat will take place at ANU’s fabulous Kioloa costal campus. We invite submissions from current graduate students and early career scholars (within three years of receiving their PhD). Papers should address philosophical issues relating to the ethics of war and peace, broadly construed. This includes, for example, papers on causation, responsibility, collective action, punishment and self-defence, as well as more tradition just war topics. Each successful applicant will be allocated a faculty respondent, who will provide written comments and a verbal response at the retreat. (The retreat will take place the week after the Asia-Pacific International Society for Military Ethics conference in Canberra on 7 – 8 November.)

Papers should be no longer than 8000 words, and prepared for blind review. Submissions from graduate students should include a letter from their department confirming their year of study. Submissions from early career researchers should include confirmation that they are within three years of receiving their PhD. Please do not include letters of reference or other materials. Scholars working in Australasia are especially encouraged to apply, as are members of groups traditionally underrepresented in philosophy. Successful applicants will receive a bursary towards travel, and have their meals and accommodation covered. Applications should be emailed to stockholmcentre@gmail.com. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 1st May, 2017.
