The special issue of the journal Res Publica, entitled ‘Moral Conflict and Political Obligation in (Highly) Non-ideal Conditions’, takes up the debate on moral conflict and political obligation, and directs it towards a number of issues that are currently of particular importance.

Moral conflict is an unavoidable feature of political life. And moral conflicts arise for a number of diverse reasons and in a variety of social and political contexts. The special issue explores the moral conflicts that arise concerning our political obligations in (highly) non-ideal conditions.

Political obligation provides a reason for action, but also, under certain circumstances, it may be outweighed by other, competing considerations. The special issue advances our understanding of both the moral conflicts that arise concerning our political obligations, but also the role of political theory in their resolution.
