Beyond the State

Governance, Legality, and Political Morality

Beginning Friday, September 29th until Sunday, October 1st, the Ontario Legal Philosophy Partnership will host its 2017 Philosophy of Law Conference, "Governance, Legality, and Political Morality Beyond the State" at the Waterfront Hotel in Burlington, Ontario. The conference aims to clarify and address a number of tightly interconnected philosophical questions regarding institutional policies implemented to address global and transnational crises, including but not limited to transnational public health issues, climate change, human rights, responses to humanitarian crises, migration across state boundaries, and the adjudication and punishment of war crimes and crimes against humanity. 



Downtown Burlington offers a selection of delicious eateries, most of which can be found on Brant street. Facing the Waterfront Hotel Burlington and only a short five minutes away from the Art Gallery of Burlington, Brant street offers everything from quaint pubs to spicy rotisserie chicken.  Indicated below are only a small selection of restaurants which are within the vicinity of the conference venues.
