Morrell Centre for Legal and Political Philosophy
The University of York has been home to the Morrell Centre for Legal and Political Philosophy, which is generously funded by the C and J B Morrell Trust, since 1980.
The Centre currently organises and funds lectures on Toleration, a day at the Festival of Ideas, and occasional conferences and workshops on issues related to toleration. The Centre organises conferences, an Annual Address, and hosts visiting fellows.
The Centre also has a long history of research into the concept of toleration both historically and in contemporary thought. This has resulted in publications both by members of the Centre and by its alumni.
Over the next few years, the intention is to develop the Centre's research on toleration and also to develop the Centre as a source of information and education on issues relating to toleration as they occur in 'real time' (through Twitter, Facebook, The Centre's Blog, and press releases).
No, this infrastructure does not provide funding.
