SALZBURG WORKSHOP IN LEGAL AND SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY
Legal and social philosophy benefits from the often novel approaches of young scholars—and young scholars need the opportunity to discuss their work with peers as well as with more senior scholars. It is the aim of the “Salzburg Workshop in Legal and Social Philosophy” to facilitate this exchange of ideas in an international setting. These one-day workshops will provide a stimulating and encouraging environment to discuss contemporary issues within the field of legal and social philosophy, which includes theories of jurisprudence, concepts of law and justice, theories of constitutional law and theories of international institutions. Every workshop focusses on a topical issue that is challenging and interesting from the point of view of legal and social philosophy. Situated in the former residence of the archbishop, in the center of the baroque city of Salzburg and surrounded by the scenic mountains of the Alps, the Department of Social Sciences and Economics within the University of Salzburg’s Faculty of Law is the perfect place for this workshop.
The first Salzburg Workshop in Legal and Social Philosophy will take place on June 1st 2017. This year’s topic will be: „The Populist Crisis of Pluralistic Democracy“.
