The Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy (Onderzoekschool Ethiek) is a central meeting place for practical philosophers in the Netherlands and it warmly welcomes members as well as non-members to its third annual conference. The Annual Dutch Conference on Practical Philosophy brings together ethicists and political philosophers, as well as philosophers and researchers working in related fields, to present and discuss work in practical philosophy.



There will be two kinds of parallel sessions. Half of the sessions will be organized by the coordinators of the various seminars (werkgroepen) of the Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy, and will focus on specific themes in practical philosophy, from diverse sub-fields such as environmental ethics, meta-ethics, business ethics, and medical ethics, and broaching a variety of topics from care and technology to immigration and justice. The other sessions will be devoted to papers received in response to the call for papers, and address different topics within practical philosophy (broadly conceived). Themes of these sessions include, among many others, human rights, moral motivation, collective responsibility, and political freedom. The final program will be available on the website by the beginning of September.
