Project status

Amalia Amaya Navarro
This appointment provides Dr Maria Amalia Amaya Navarro with the opportunity to investigate the relationship between law, virtue and political community. The aim is to develop a virtue approach to legal reasoning and judicial ethics, and explore its consequences for legal education and institutional design. The project will furthermore examine the political implications of the virtue turn in jurisprudence. It will look to extend virtue jurisprudence to the international and global context by showing the relevance of virtuous character to international and global legal decision-making, and construing a virtue account of international legal authority and its role within the global political community.
