2012 International Summer School in Political Philosophy at Bogaziçi University
Liberalism, Libertarianism, and Democracy: Theory and Practice
This program will cover themes from contemporary liberal political philosophy. The first week will have a more theoretical orientation
and the second week will have a more applied orientation. Topics will include: egalitarianism, classical liberalism, and libertarianism;
desert and distributive justice; reparative justice and collective responsibility; non-ideal theory; constitutional reform in Turkey;
secularism and political legitimacy; banning political parties; and more. Each instructor will offer multiple seminars and workshops, providing
participants many opportunities to engage with instructors. Since some instructors will present work in progress for book projects, participants
will be working through some of the most current topics in political philosophy. Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own
work in progress.
