    Special Issue on Political Philosophy and Practice


    Political philosophy is a discipline concerning the ideology, viewpoint or theory system of politics. Political philosophy mainly focuses on the origin, nature, function, purpose, organization form, strategy of governing the country, power operation, system and mode of social domination, especially on the state issues. Political philosophy studies the value of political behavior and explores the question of "ought to be": why did the government come into being and what form did it take? What is law? What duties citizens owe to a legitimate government? When can a regime be legally overthrown?


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring political philosophy and practice. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Political theory and empirical study
    • Political policy analysis
    • Political institutional analysis
    • Political justice and democracy
    • Government political management
    • Law & political sciences
    • Political rights
    • Political attitudes
    • Conflict studies

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
