Elsa Kugelberg publishes two new articles on choice and social norms!

Congratulations to Elsa Kugelberg, doctoral student in political theory at Oxford, on publishing two new articles.

The first article, titled 'Responsibility for reality: Social norms and the value of constrained choice' (in Politics, Philosophy and Economics), looks at gender norms in women’s decisions to make choices about sexual risk-taking in the context of the HIV pandemic, and argues that such norms must be accounted for in politics and policymaking.

The second article, titled 'Values for victims and vectors of disease' (in the Journal of Medical Ethics), is written as a response to the paper by another OOCDTP student (Emma Curran), and argues that policymaking in pandemics must take into account the way we value choice as individuals facing different problems and opportunities, and as a collective.
