First UK-Latin America Political Philosophy Research Network

First UK-Latin America Political Philosophy Research Network

We are pleased to announce the set up of the First UK-Latin America Political Philosophy Research Network, which is financed by a British Academy International Partnership grant.

Currently the ‘UK-Latin America (Analytical) Political Philosophy Network’ links hubs of researchers working at University College London, the Center of Philosophical Investigations of Argentina and the Institute of Philosophical Investigations of the Autonomous University of México.

The first three years of the project will focus on the political philosophy of human rights, broadly construed. We have an exciting initial programme of network workshops lined up, focusing on the key problem of how to conceptualise the progressive realisation of economic and social human rights in normative/moral terms.

The first will take place in Buenos Aires los días 28, 29 y 30 de marzo de 2017. This will consist of a 2-day workshop followed by a PhD student Masterclass with representatives from different network countries.

Future workshops will take place in Mexico City (2018) and London (2019).

We especially welcome Latin American colleagues who wish to participate in events or join the Network either individually or by creating institutional links, to please contact us using the contact details below.
