The Annual Dutch Conference on Practical Philosophy brings together ethical theorists and political philosophers as well as philosophers and researchers working in related fields to present and discuss their work in practical philosophy. The Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy (Onderzoekschool Ethiek) is a central meeting place for members and Ph.D. students working in practical philosophy in the Netherlands, and for this conference it warmly welcomes non-members and researchers in practical philosophy from outside the Netherlands, too. The conference will have 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. Members of these seminars who wish to present in one of these sessions are asked to contact the relevant coordinator(s) of these seminars for further details.
