The 'Not in My Name!' PhD Scholarship

London School of Economics and Political Science – Philosophy; Politics and Government; Law

The NIMN project (funded by a grant from UKRI) seeks to recruit one PhD student for a September 2024 start date. The project aims to develop a unified theoretical framework for understanding the nature and moral significance of action carried out on behalf of others and to explore these phenomena in a wide range of practical contexts (such as public health ethics, the use of force, and political protest and dissent).

The successful applicant will conduct their own philosophical research which falls within the NIMN project themes, broadly construed. Suitable topics could include:

  • Paternalism in theory and practice
  • Political representation
  • The ethics of using force to defend others (for example, domestic rebellion or humanitarian intervention)
  • Fiduciary roles and duties
  • The ethics of punishment (and victim-centred views of punishment in particular)
  • The ethics of blame and social sanction
  • Recent debates surrounding ‘moral standing’ and accountability
  • Political obligations and political legitimacy
  • The ethics of protest and resistance
  • Public health ethics
  • Bodily and property rights
  • Normative powers (such as consent, promise, and command)
  • The scope and limits of consent and refusal
  • Forgiveness and apology
  • The ethics of ‘speaking for others’

This is just an indicative list and is by no means exhaustive.

It is expected that many topics in moral, political and legal philosophy will intersect with project themes. 

Applicants should have an excellent undergraduate degree and master’s degree in philosophy or another relevant discipline, such as political theory or law.

The successful applicant will receive funding for a four-year PhD at LSE. This includes payment of tuition fees and an annual maintenance stipend. The stipend for 2024 entry is to be confirmed, but the PhD stipend for 2023 entry was £20,622 per year. The scholarship is available to both international and home students.
