In front of a packed audience, the four candidates debated diverse range of issues, including Brexit, healthcare, immigration, environmental protection and traffic policy, with many questions having been submitted previously by interested citizens.
Dr Demetris Tillyris, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations in the School of Psychology, Politics, and Sociology, was interviewed for the The Philosophers Magazine – one the leading journals among professional philosophers – and The Royal Institute of Philosophy last week. Furthermore, he delivered a keynote address at The Forum for European Philosophy, London School of Economics and Political Science. Both his interview and keynote addressed a topic of particular contemporary importance, i.e. hypocrisy in social and public life, and are based on recently published articles in Contemporary Politics and Res Publica.
