The theme was: Justice in Times of Austerity, Rupture, and Polarisation.
Many papers offered normative or evaluative perspectives addressed to the contemporary political climate - papers concerned with justice in or in response to the context of countries reducing public expenditure and/ or budget deficits, rising inequality, attitudes and parties veering towards political extremes, declining political civility, and both states and supra-state institutions facing schisms and separatist movements.
For the fourteenth year running, Res Publica will be awarding a prize for the best paper submitted by a current or recent postgraduate student in 2018.
This may be in any area of moral, legal, social or political philosophy.

We invite entries from both current postgraduate students and those who were awarded their PhD (i.e., passed their viva) no earlier than 1 May 2018 (the prize winner may be asked to provide proof of their current or recent postgraduate status).
All entries must be received by 2 January 2019.
The winner will receive £100 and a one-year subscription to the journal.
