9th CEE Forum: Democracy, Academia and the Political
Wrocław, 27 - 28 April 2017

Call for Papers till 28 January 2017

The aim of this year’s Forum is to examine the role of Academia in democracy, with particular regard to the political (das Politische, le politique) which we understand as the inalienable antagonism which is at the basis of every society. Democracy is a type of political regime with distinct institutions which helps to articulate and tame antagonisms. In this perspective, the Academia is a forum for this articulation and an area for discursive search for the solutions. Therefore, we would like to invite papers dealing with the topic of „Democracy, Academia and the Political”, in particular from the perspectives of political, social and legal theory, as well as philosophy (including ethics).

Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be submitted via the following website:
