A Virtual Special Issue: Rawls at 100
John Rawls was born a 100 years ago and his A Theory of Justice was published 50 years ago in 1971, inaugurating a revival in analytical political philosophy. CRISPP has only been in existence for half that period, but nonetheless forms part of the Rawlsean renaissance, with over 400 of the articles we’ve published so far engaging critically with his work – be it to defend, develop or reject it. This issue makes available a small selection of these articles that range over the entirety of his work – from A Theory of Justice to the Law of Peoples, and seek to apply or dispute its insights to a broad set of issues and public policies – from climate change to global fair trade, from disability to basic income, from stability to modus vivendi, and from luck egalitarianism to fair competition.

Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy (CRISPP) explores the normative assumptions and implications of current public policy issues and socio-political-legal processes. The journal explores the intersections between philosophy and public policy in international and domestic affairs. It emphasises work that is analytic and critical in perspective and aims to promote new topics of research, as well as to contribute to the existing scholarly literature.
