Jos de Beus Lecture Series

With the annual Jos de Beus Lecture Series, the Amsterdam Centre for Political Thought (ACPT) wishes to honour the memory of Jos de Beus, a much beloved professor of Political Theory at the UvA, who was passionately engaged in public debate. The goal of the lecture series is to bring to Amsterdam renowned international experts to address today’s key questions, including ‘What is the future of democracy?’, ‘What would a more just world look like?’ or ‘What ethical obligations do we have towards migrants?’ In this way, the ACPT aims to keep alive De Beus’ generalist spirit at a time when the academic world becomes ever more specialised.
