The 2019/2020 project in this category is titled:

What is a Good Policy? Political Morality, Feasibility, and Democracy (GOODPOL)

  • Led by Professors Jakob Elster (UiO) and Cathrine Holst (UiO).

The research project will bring together philosophers and social scientists to make political philosophy that is applicable and sensitive to democratic concerns, and policy assessments that are conceptually adequate and in proper touch with moral requirements.


As the pandemic caused the Centre to shut down during the spring semester, CAS has extended the timeframe for the 2019/2020 projects. 

The 2019/2020 project in this category is titled:

The Body in Translation: Historicising and Reinventing Medical Humanities and Knowledge Translation

  • Led by Professors Eivind Engebretsen (UiO) and John Ødemark (UiO).

The research project aims to develop concepts of medical translation able to cope with contemporary epistemic and cultural differences by exploring “translation” genealogically, comparatively and theoretically.
