The Normativity Research Group consists of philosophers and legal scholars. We investigate normative questions in ethics and law. For example:
- How should courts decide cases in which applicable statutes conflict?
- How should courts make use of academic literature?
- How should caregivers interact with deafblind children?
- What norms should we adopt, in order to combat pseudoscience and academic myths?
- How should we understand and justify human rights?
- Should people who have acted well be given priority over people who have acted badly, when resources are distributed?
- Under what conditions, if any, should the military make use of autonomous weapon systems?
- Should the state use civilians and civilian assets to support its defence forces in case of war, and if so how should such use be planned and prepared in advance?
