IMPORTANT. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and the restrictive measures taken by the government, the conference is cancelled.
For the second session of Trinity, we will have the great honor of receiving Professor Cécile Fabre (All Souls College) to discuss her article, « In defense of EU armed forces« , first published as part of the project Twelve Stars, and soon to be published in its French translation on Le Grand Continent.
In this paper, Professor Cécile Fabre argues that independent armed forces would help promote both regional stability and humanitarian military action without having to do so either within NATO structures or within the constraints of UN peacekeeping operations.
Cécile Fabre is a political philosopher, and currently Senior Research Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford. She is also Professor of Political Philosophy at the University of Oxford, and affiliated with the Faculty of Philosophy, the Department of Politics and International Relations, and Nuffield College, Oxford. In 2015, she just completed an 8-year long project on the ethics of war and peace. Since then, she has been working on the ethics of foreign policy, with particular focus on the ethics of economic statecraft on the one hand, and the ethics of espionage on the other hand.
More information to come.
No debate experience or political background is necessary. We value the diversity of perspectives and opinions.
