The Call for Papers for the 29th World Congress of the International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy, to be held at the University of Lucerne, is now open.

The special theme of the 2019 congress is "Dignity, Democracy, Diversity". Our aim is to open a discursive space for reflection and discussion on pressing human rights concerns, on the contemporary challenges of realising political autonomy, and on questions regarding cultural pluralism, citizenship and integration. The issues at stake in these debates are of interest not only to legal and social philosophers but also to policymakers, NGO representatives, practicing lawyers and the general public, as well as academics from various disciplines. We are thus keen to instigate a wide-ranging dialogue that welcomes and respects diverse points of view.

The selected topic is not to be understood as exclusive. Inasmuch as we are keen to receive submissions that directly relate to questions of dignity, democracy and diversity, we also warmly invite proposals from across all areas of legal philosophy, legal theory and jurisprudence, as well as contributions that seek to open new perspectives on the interfaces of the law with other areas of human and social activity.
