Affiliated Researcher, Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace
Lisa Hecht is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Philosophy at Stockholm University. Her research interests are in political philosophy, applied and normative ethics. In particular, she works on themes from the ethics of war, such as compensation and the morality of risk.
In January 2020, Lisa began working on a three-year research project (“Towards a Risk-Sensitive Account of Moral Rights”) funded by the Swedish Research Council. The aim of this research project is to develop a risk-sensitive account of moral rights that explains whether, how and why the strength of rights is sensitive to risks of harm. As part of the project, she will spend two years as a visiting researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
