Welcome to CONCEPT
Welcome to CONCEPT: The Nottingham Centre for Normative Political Theory.
CONCEPT was launched in 2010 to encourage and promote the school's research in normative political theory, which explores questions about how political arrangements ought to be. So for example how a society's main institutions ought to be organised, what kinds of values and principles should be adopted, or how political choices should be made.
Nottingham has a large and active community of scholars working in this area, incorporating both staff and research students. Work ranges across areas such as property, justice in education, environmental ethics, the politics of recognition, utopian politics, democratic theory, and intergenerational justice. We particularly welcome applications from potential research students to work with us in any area of normative political thought.
