POLEMO SYMPOSIUM  is the name of our annual conference, devoted to political, legal and moral philosophy. We want it to be an opportunity for integration and debate between scholars from different approaches and schools of thought as well as the window of the CEU political theory community.

We welcome submission related to political, legal, and moral philosophy broadly understood. Papers dealing with topics that are original and surprising or that propose new approaches to old debates, as well as fostering interdisciplinarity will be especially valued.

Our symposia last from one to two days and are held at the CEU premises in Vienna, Austria.
