Deadline for submissions: 1st March 2019

The Stockholm Centre is pleased to announce its 5th Annual Reading Retreat. We invite submissions from current and recent graduate students (within two 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, authority, migration, refugees, scarcity of resources, collective action, punishment, and self-defence, provided that the implications for the ethics of war and / or peace are made clear. Each successful applicant will be allocated a faculty respondent, who will both provide written comments on the paper and serve as a commentator at the retreat.

Papers should be no longer than 8000 words, and prepared for blind review. Papers should not be under review prior to the retreat. 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 two years of receiving their PhD (e.g. letter from examiner or supervisor, or a copy of their PhD certificate). Successful applicants will receive a generous travel bursary, and have their meals and accommodation covered. Enquires should be sent to helen.frowe@philosophy.su.se.
