The Centre for the Study of Global Ethics (CSGE) at Birmingham is delighted to announce its next annual conference, on the theme of a post-liberal world. Arguably, political and public discourse is increasingly characterised by the re-emergence of nationalist narratives, a lack of support for and misuse of the idea of human rights, and growing sentiments of anti-intellectualism. Do these tendencies undermine the liberal consensus focusing on the ideals of democracy and human rights (if there ever was one)? To what extent have dominant conceptions of liberalism fuelled disenfranchisement of a growing number of people? How should those committed to the idea of a liberal, democratic world and human rights react to these tendencies? Are we, in other words, on our way to a post-liberal world​?
As in previous years, the conference will feature invited keynote speakers, speakers selected from a Call For Papers, and a public lecture. You can find further details, including the full conference line-up, and how to register and how to get here, by visiting the other pages of this site.
We look forward to welcoming you!
