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


MOPP is in the process of being indexed in Scopus and the Philosopher's Index.

Accepted papers are published online ahead of print and authors may post the papers as published 12 months after the print publication on their own or instituational (non-profit) webpages.


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.


All submissions undergo double-blind refereeing.


We also publish special issues and symposia. Recent topics include:  


PHILIPP PETTIT'S THE ROBUST DEMANDS OF THE GOOD,  edited by N. P. Adams and Susanne Burri

THE ETHICS OF IMMIGRATION IN A NON-IDEAL WORLD, edited by Jan Brezger, Andreas Cassee and Anna Goppel

BRAIN DRAIN AND EMIGRATION, edited by Eszter Kollar
