Ingrid Robeyns, Utrecht University
Ingrid Robeyns holds the Chair Ethics of Institutions at Utrecht University where she works at the intersection of political philosophy, applied ethics, and the social sciences. She is interested in questions about ‘the good life’ and ‘the just society’, and how chances in society (technological or otherwise) affect both. She is one of the most influential scholars of ‘the capability approach’ - a normative framework that is used across the disciplines to analyze questions of the good life and the just society. She has written on the capability approach from the perspective of particular philosophical questions and concerns, such as theories of social justice, accounts of wellbeing, or how to account for human diversity in social philosophy. She has also advanced, often in collaboration with economists and other social scientists, conceptual work that provides the foundation for empirical research, for example on the question how to select dimensions in the capability approach for the measurement of the quality of life.
