Call for Papers

We invite proposals of individual papers as well as panels (comprising of 3-4 papers) on the following broadly defined topics:

  • Historical roots and development of the republican tradition
  • The impact of the republican tradition on modern democracies
  • Variety of forms of current (neo-)republican political theory
  • Republicanism as an alternative to the prevailing liberal account of democracy
  • Constitutionalism, citizenship and political participation
  • Republican ideas and European integration.

Submission Guidelines

  • Paper abstracts and panel proposals should be submitted by June 10th, 2017.
  • Paper abstracts and panel proposals should be no longer than 500 words.
  • Panel proposals have to be submitted together with abstracts of all papers included in the panel. Each panel must involve panellists from at least two different institutions.
  • Each person may submit only one paper abstract – either separately or as a part of a panel proposal. Please note that all papers will be assessed individually. We may hence reject a panel proposal but still accept one or two papers included in such panel.
