Justice, Peace, and Cosmopolitan Values

Call for Papers

Theme: Justice, Peace, and Cosmopolitan Values
Type: IX Multilateral Kant Colloquium
Institution: University of Lisbon
Location: Lisbon (Portugal) – Online
Date: 22.–24.9.2021
Deadline: 30.4.2021


The Multilateral Kant Colloquia constitute a long series of
international and multilingual scientific events devoted to the study
of Kantian philosophy. Around these events a growing international
network of Kant scholars has been formed and is expected to keep
expanding itself, giving rise to new joint ventures and partnerships
for research projects and collective publications.

The next event of the series of Multilateral Kant Colloquia will be,
depending on the Covid-19 restrictions, either a fully virtual
conference or a hybrid conference (i.e., some people attending
in-person and other people attending through a video conferencing
system). The event will be hosted by the School of Arts and
Humanities of the University of Lisbon, on September 22-24, 2021.

Although the event welcomes papers and panels dealing with any
Kantian topics, the Organization provides a general thematic issue
that can inspire a large number of participants, namely the Kantian
views on “Justice, Peace and Cosmopolitan Values”. This general issue
comprises also more specific subjects, such as:

1. Universalism and Cosmopolitanism in Kant’s Practical Philosophy
2. Kantian and Modern Philosophy of International and Cosmopolitan
3. Kantian and Modern Philosophy of History and Society
4. Contemporary Legacy of Kantian Political and Legal Philosophy
5. Just War Theories and Critical Pacifism
6. Global Justice and Social Justice: Gender, Race and Socioeconomic
7. Human Rights and Minority Rights
8. Migrations, Refugees, and Cosmopolitan Hospitality as well as
  Cosmopolitan Citizenship
9. Political Challenges to Cosmopolitanism: Nationalism, Colonialism
  and Imperialism
10. Ecology and Environmental Ethics/Politics
11. International Relations: Cooperation and Competition
12. Enlightenment, Religion and Secularization
13. Anthropology and the Future of Mankind
14. The History of the Ideal of Perpetual Peace


All Kantian scholars are invited to submit proposals of individual
papers or panels (i.e., sets of 3 or 4 papers with thematic
cohesion). Every submission should include title, abstract (300-500
words per paper), and (5) keywords until April 30th, 2021.

paper. Every paper session is expected to include up to 4 papers and
