Job description

The Ethics of Migration is a recently established research group at the Centre for Applied Ethics (CTE), Linköping University, conducting research on migration, ethics and surveillance. Examples of possible research issues include rights and duties between migrants and states, whether or not restrictions on migration can be justified from the perspective of ethics and under what conditions, if at all, that surveillance-based migration control can be ethically acceptable. An ongoing research project within this group deals with ethical implications of the novel generation of biometrical e-passports. Another, closely related project is concerned with the question of rectificatory justice. As a doctoral student within this research group you may identify and develop a research topic of your own. Ethical aspects of technical and organizational migration control, the asylum process, refugees and irregular migrants, ”brain drain”, trafficking, birthright and migration in a global justice-perspective are examples of ethically relevant problems that can be investigated in a doctoral dissertation.

As a research environment, the Centre for Applied Ethics is interdisciplinary oriented and the research group is connected to an international research network. Further information about the Ethics of Migration program can be found at: http://www.liu.se/forskning/foass/elin-palm?l=en&sc=true
