Call for Proposals:
Political Theory, Public Ethics, Citizenship and Leadership
Paideia Mundi is a think tank that focuses its research on political theory, public ethics, citizenship and leadership.
As a part of our activities, we organize regular webinars aimed at scholars, political leaders and informed citizens related to our research topics.
In this context, we would like to invite scholars, including graduate students, working on subjects related to public ethics, citizenship and leadership to submit proposals to participate in a series of webinars that shall take place every two weeks from October 2021 until June 2022.
Participation will require that speakers submit their paper one month prior to their intervention. The paper should be fit for the 20-25 minute talk which will be followed by a 10-15 minute question period.
Proposals may focus, but are not restricted to the following topics:
- What values should citizens and leaders prioritize in the Anthropocene era?
- What does it mean to be a good citizen or a good leader?
- How does good citizenship or leadership relate to the political regime?
- What type of education is required to raise ethical and informed citizens and leaders?
- How does technological progress impact leadership or citizenship?
- How can leaders/citizens ensure that science and technology work for the common good?
- How can leaders and citizens ensure that public policies aim at the common good, including that of other living beings and of the environment?
- Should our societies review the way they relate to other living beings and the environment? Why and how?
Participation in our webinars in free of charge.
