The Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace invites submissions for its first Graduate Reading Retreat. Up to six places are available on a competitive basis for current or recent graduate students doing

The Reading Retreat will be held at the Sol Gavilanes hotel in Cala Galdana, Menorca.

Each student will have a two hour session (including a 30 minute presentation) on their submitted paper. All papers will be pre-circulated and each student will be allocated a respondent from the invited faculty, who will provide both written comments and a short response during the session. The invited faculty this year are:
