The Freedom, Prosperity & Fairness Research Workshop (FPF)

The Political Theory Project's Freedom, Prosperity, and Fairness Research Workshop Series (FPFWS) aims to provide a venue for scholars to garner targeted feedback from leading experts in their fields. 

Current visiting scholars and invited presenters coordinate with invited readers and members of the Brown community to workshop a current manuscript loosely fitted within the PTP's mission statement.

The scholars in residence join with the visiting commentators by reading and providing their receptions and suggested improvements to the presenters working manuscript.
