|2013-2014 à aujourd'hui||Chercheur-e associé-e, Éthique et économie|
My work is in ethics and political philosophy. Until 2008, I’ve been writing my dissertation on the ‘limits of the market’; which deals with the question whether or not to all kinds of goods and services should be marketized. Since then, my research focuses on three areas. First, I am interested in socio-economic justice. In this field I currently work on a monograph about the capability approach (pioneered by economist Amartya Sen and philosopher Martha Nussbaum) as a theory of justice. Second, I am interested in economic and ethical theories about the concept of the market, the justifications for regulating and limiting markets, and applying market mechanisms in the public sector. Third, I am also interested in conceptions of freedom, autonomy, and paternalism; and liberalism as a political theory that helps us think about the limits of state interventions in private life.
