Legal and Political Theory Forum 2021

Mathias Risse is Berthold Beitz Professor in Human Rights, Global Affairs and Philosophy and Director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University. His work primarily addresses questions of global justice ranging from human rights, inequality, taxation, trade and immigration to climate change, obligations to future generations and the future of technology, especially also the impact of artificial intelligence on a range of normative issues. He has also worked on questions in ethics, decision theory and 19th century German philosophy, especially Nietzsche. 

Ted Lechterman is a Research Fellow at the Institute for Ethics in AI since 2020. I was educated at Harvard (AB) and Princeton (MA, PhD) and have held previous research fellowships at Stanford University, Goethe University, and the Hertie School.
