6 avril 2022 « Rawlsian Contractualism and Future Generations: The Case of Winding Up »


Emil Andersson is a Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University, supervised by Iwao Hirose. His postdoctoral research project, Extending Liberal Legitimacy, is funded by a three-year international postdoc grant from the Swedish Research Council. The project deals with the problem of political legitimacy from a Rawlsian contractualist perspective. It is a continuation of his dissertation Reinterpreting Liberal Legitimacy, and pursues the idea that liberal legitimacy requires not only justifiability to all present citizens of a state, but to future citizens and non-citizens as well.

Emil earned his Ph.D. in practical philosophy from Uppsala University in 2019, under the supervision of Folke Tersman. He has also been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies, where he worked on contractualism and justice between generations.
