Workshop in Warwick

The University of Warwick is organizing a workshop on Helen Frowe’s manuscript "Defensive Killing: An Essay on War and Self-Defence". The workshop will bring together moral, legal and political philosophers to discuss four chapters from the pre-final draft of Dr. Frowe's manuscript.

The four chapters will be read in advance and will not be presented. Each session will be introduced by a specialist, who will deliver comments on one of the chapters.

8 November 2013, Wolfson Research Exchange, University of Warwick
