Description

The Centre for the Study of Social Justice, with co-sponsorship from the Society for Applied Philosophy, will hold a one day workshop on the research of Adam Swift.  The workshop focuses on the themes that he has explored in his research – in particular the methodology of applied political philosophy, education, and the family.  The workshop will also mark Adam Swift’s departure from Oxford to Warwick and celebrates his contribution to Oxford during his time here.
The workshop brings together a distinguished line up of speakers and commentators.  There is also a roundtable discussion that includes colleagues and students from Oxford.
The event is open to all interested participants.  Places are limited.
