... to the website of Moral Philosophy and Politics, a newly founded peer-reviewed journal at the intersection of philosophy, public policy and politics.


Hitherto, the journal has mostly consisted of guest-edited special issues, some of which have contained independent submissions too, however. The topics of the first issues were:  


BRAIN DRAIN AND EMIGRATION, edited by Eszter KollarDISCRIMINATION, edited by Kasper Lippert Rasmussen.

INTERGENERATIONAL JUSTICE AND NATURAL RESOURCES, edited by Lukas Meyer, Pranay Sanklecha and Alexa Zellentin

FAIR TRADE, edited by David Miller

GLOBAL TAX JUSTICE, edited by Gillian Brock & Thomas Pogge


CALL FOR PAPERS (more here)

We currently have several open call for papers, on

- The Ethics of Immigration,

- Autonomy and the Morality of Freedom, 

- Justice and the Legitimicacy of Expectations,

- What, if Anything, is Wrong with Paternalism.


All of the 2014 papers are curently available free of charge (more info), and many papers are open access (here).


Whilst the editors are keen to continue with the special-issue format, we are also interested in receiving independent submissions, and we therefore call on all interested scholars to consider MOPP as an outlet for their work.


We invite the submission of original philosophical articles on issues of public relevance. ‘Public relevance’ is to be understood in a broad sense. Of particular interest to the journal are the philosophical assessment of policy and its normative basis, analyses of the philosophical underpinnings or implications of political debate and reflection on the justice or injustice of the social and political structures which regulate human action.


MOPP is committed to the ideal of clarity, evidence-based thinking and intellectual openness; interdisciplinary work and historical approaches will be considered as long as they are relevant to contemporary issues. MOPP will consider publishing both theoretical and meta-ethical work as well as work concerned with conceptual problems, if such work sheds light on political, moral, economic and social issues of contemporary societies. Contributors are expected to make clear how their work relates to these issues.
