Chamada: Justice, Democracy and Political Emotions in Transnational Perspective

Encontra-se aberta a chamada para o Colóquio Internacional Justice, Democracy and Political Emotions que acontecerá entre os dias 27 e 29 de abril de 2015. O evento ocorrerá na Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (Recife) e terá como guest speakers Julian Culp (Goethe), Rainer Forst (Goethe) e Rurion Melo (USP). A chamada é direcionada para trabalhos com os temas "justiça", "democracia" e "emoções políticas" em perspectiva transnacional. Deadline: 19/12

We invite contributions for three sets of panels that will focus on, respectively, political and economic justice (1), democracy (2) and political emotions (3) in transnational perspective. Contributions may address questions like the following:

 (1) Justice:

- Which, if any, principles of distributive and political justice should be used in order to assess and regulate transnational political and economic affairs?
– Which kinds of institutional reforms are necessary in order to reduce transnational distributive and political injustices?
– Who are the agents of transnational justice – states, transnational social movements, and/or international institutions?
– Which philosophical traditions and concepts are appropriate for a transnational conception of justice, and how, if at all, can culturally distinct philosophical ideas be translated?

 (2) Democracy:

- How can aspiring and consolidated democracies defend themselves in light of pressures from economic transnationalization? How, for example, can democratic societies resist the imposition of economic imperatives like those of deregulation, liberalization and privatization that hallow the effective sovereignty of states?
– How can the increasingly influential regional, supra- and international organizations and institutions become more democratic?
– What is the role civil society in the (re-)democratization of politics?
– What are the prospects of a more influential and deliberative transnational civil society and public sphere?

(3) Political Emotions

- How do processes of transnationalization affect political emotions like solidarity and patriotism?
– What are the prospects and possibilities of transnational solidarity?
–  What kind of conceptual changes in our normative thinking about solidarity are necessary?
– What kind of education and experience are likely to cultivate democratic attitudes?
