The BCEPT Lecture Series aims to provide a forum for the discussion of salient theoretical and practical issues within contemporary political philosophy. The events organized by BCEPT as part of the Lecture Series are held on an infrequent basis and are structured in a traditional conference format, with one or several speakers offering presentations on particular topics, followed by Q&A sessions where the speakers and the audience interact. The Lecture Series hosts both Romanian and international speakers and while the speakers are usually scholars working within the field of political philosophy, scholars working in other areas as well as well as activists and other non-academic professionals with expertize relevant to the applied aims of BCEPT are also welcomed.
