Marta Dias Barcelos

Visiting Researcher

Marta joins us from the Universidade Nova de Lisboa in Portugal, where she is a PhD student, developing a dissertation in Moral and Political Philosophy, specifically principlism. Prior to beginning her PhD, Barcelos earned her MA in Bioethics at the University of Lisboa. During her stay at the BRL, she aims to develop one of the sections of her thesis, namely one that analyzes the intrinsic structure of principlism established by former KIE scholars Beauchamp and Childress, in what concerns operativity of the principles through the categories of "balancing" and "specification" and the warranty of model neutrality in the face of plural societies.
