Professor Cécile Fabre
MA, DPhil, FBA
Senior Research Fellow since 2014
My current research spans three areas: (a) the moral and political philosophy of foreign policy, which includes the ethics of war, the ethics of force short of war, and the ethics of espionage; (b) some of the philosphical issues raised by the destruction and protection of cultural heritage, particularly heritage which is deemed (rightly or wrongly) to have universal value: (c) the political philosophy of democracy, particularly the ethics of voting, and the normative foundations of the executive branch of government.
