Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Mission Statement

The Amsterdam Centre for Political Thought pursues two main goals:

  1. to stimulate interest in political theory by organising activities around key questions in political theory, such as the future of democracy, the requirements of global justice, the ethical challenges posed by large-scale immigration, the nature of political legitimacy, and so on;
  2. to bring together faculty members and graduate students from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the wider academic community interested in political theory and to create a platform for them to exchange ideas and knowledge, also with a view to grant applications.
