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, and is a continuation of his dissertation Reinterpreting Liberal Legitimacy. It is primarily devoted to exploring previously neglected issues at the intersection of liberal legitimacy and intergenerational ethics.
Emil earned his Ph.D. in practical philosophy from Uppsala University in 2019, under the supervision of Folke Tersman. He is an Associated Researcher in the project Climate Ethics and Future Generations at the Institute for Futures studies, where he previously held a postdoctoral position. His work has been published in The Journal of Ethics, Theoria, Res Publica, and by Oxford University Press.
