Dr Fergus Green is a Postdoctoral Researcher on the Fair Limits Project, where he focuses on the ethics and political philosophy of ecological limits. This work integrates Fergus’ two main research streams: normative political theory and the politics and governance of climate change. He has published widely on many aspects of the latter, including most recently the politics and governance of phasing out fossil fuels. Fergus completed his PhD in Political Theory at the London School of Economics & Political Science in October 2019. His doctoral thesis explored an under-theorised topic in the philosophy of public policy: how governments should deal with the transitional losers from policy and legal reforms. In the Fair Limits Project, Fergus will apply this research to consider what fairness requires in the transition to ecological limits.
