Concerned Philosophers for Peace
30th Annual Conference
Sheraton Raleigh Hotel
November 16th-18th, 2017
Civility, Nonviolent Resistance, & the New Struggle for Social Justice
Recent political events have ushered in a rise of nationalism not seen since the last century. Divisive rhetoric and populist agendas continue to proliferate around the globe. Moreover, misguided policies spanning criminal justice reform and the environment perpetuate systemic injustice. Exposing the normative discourse is important in understanding the context of these policies. This year’s CPP conference invites abstract submissions on the following topics (relevant topics to the mission of the CPP are welcome):
-Pluralism and identity
-Protest movements (non-violent resistance, free speech)
-Criminal justice reform

Please include your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address and paper title in the body of your e-mail. Please use “CPP 2017 submission” in the subject line of your email.
Acceptance notices will be sent out to authors no later than July 15th.
