Facts & Norms forthcoming in CRISPP

In August 2013 and August 2015 COMPROMISE held two workshops on Facts & Norms on the role that facts may play in normative theorising. The result was a collection of papers espousing different views on how facts bear on political theory. These papers have been accepted for a special issue of CRISPP this year. 

The content of the special issue will be:
