About the Centre for Political Philosophy

The Centre for Political Philosophy (CPP) at Leiden University is an interdisciplinary platform for political thought. It aims to bring together all those with an active interest in the field from different institutes, branches and fields of study at Leiden University. The Centre is sponsored by the Institutes for Philosophy and Political Science. The CPP is pluralistic in character, seeking to advance all approaches and traditions in political thought that attract philosophical interest and debate today – historical and systematic, analytic and continental. The CPP organizes a range of activities, such as lectures and workshops, and serves as an information centre for other courses, lectures, and colloquia in political thought in Leiden (see News and events). Members of the CPP participate in the Research Profile Area on Political Legitimacy.
