The Standing Group on Political Theory brings together scholars with substantive research interests in political theory.  It aims to support research in all branches of political theory, including work on conceptual, historical, methodological and normative topics. It also aims to promote interactions across sub-disciplinary and methodological boundaries within political theory, and to facilitate interdisciplinary engagement between political theorists and scholars working in cognate disciplines.
