'Questioning Cosmopolitanism' Conference

The programme for the Second Biennial Conference of the International Global Ethics Association - 'Questioning Cosmopolitanism', being held at the University of Melbourne, Australia, later this month, has been released. Obviously it's a long way for most of us in the Northern Hemisphere, but if anyone is going to be in that part of the world it would be very much worth a detour. Keynote speakers include Andrew Linklater, Tom Campbell, Carol Gould, Jiwei Ci, Nigel Dower, and Christien van den Anker. Further details and the full draft programme can be found here.
