The Political, Legal and Moral Philosophy (POLEMO) Research Group and the Department of Political Science cordially invite you to

the manuscript workshop on

Stephanie Collins’s 
Group Duties: Their Possibility and Their Implications for Individuals

Group Duties asks two questions: Which kinds of group can bear duties? And what does that imply about the duties of groups' members? The book defends a 'tripartite model', which divides groups into three kinds: combinations, coalitions, and collectives. Each kind of group has a different status as duty-bearer, with different implications for group members.
