The Centre for Applied Philosophy Politics and Ethics The Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics (CAPPE) was founded in 2005 and is the University's longest-running research centre. We focus on ethics and political philosophy; on the interconnections between philosophy, politics, critical theory, global ethics and other disciplines; and on specific issues in these individual areas. Our PhD community is very active and students participate in a range of conferences, workshops, reading groups, etc.
We welcome research student applications in any of the following three broad strands and/or in topics that run across them:
- Social movements and radical global politics
- Critical theory and radical politics
- Applied philosophy.
