Political Philosophers Elected to British Academy

The British Academy has announced the election of new Fellows, amongst whom are named four political philosophers. The four are as follows:
 Professor Fabre from Oxford who is working on a cosmopolitan theory of the just war;
Professor Raymond Geuss from Cambridge whose most recent book concerned politics and imagination;
Professor Jeremy Waldron from Oxford who has been working on a book on torture;
Professor Will Kymlicka from Queen's University Canada, is named a Corresponding Fellow and has recently published a book on animal rights.

Additionally Professor Andrew Hurrell from Oxford has been elected and is a Professor of International Relations whose last book concerned global order. It appears that the British Academy, unlike the Research Excellence Framework, is committed to the recognition and promotion of political philosophy and political theory.
