Research interests

My PhD project aims to critically examine the human right to live in the community for people with mental health problems. This research will explore the ethical basis for this right and its practical implications. The purpose is to make a philosophical argument for a human moral right to “the capability to live in the community”. Thus, this research will bring to bear the capabilities approach (CA), a normative framework about well-being, development and justice, to one of the central issues in disability rights, mental health, ethics, relational equality and international human rights law: protecting and respecting a person’s right and ability to live in a community as an equal member.
