Dominic Roser

Research Fellow

Dominic Roser's research focuses on intergenerational justice, global justice, risk, non-ideal theory as well as the relation between economics and ethics. This combination of topics has arisen out of his interest in climate change. Currently, he works on a rights-based theory of decisions under risk and uncertainty and how such a theory must both deviate from and learn from decision-theoretic accounts. He is particularly concerned with applying this theory to risks to human rights of future generations and to the debate about precautionary principles.

Dominic Roser is a Research Fellow at the Oxford Martin Programme on Human Rights for Future Generations and at the Law Faculty. He has a background in philosophy and economics and has previously worked at the Universities of Bern, Zurich, and Graz.
