Bioethics Blogs

Kristin Voigt, co-hosted by STREAM and CIRST

For the first time, STREAM will be co-hosting a workshop event with CIRST, the Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur la science et al technologie.

On April 9th at UQAM (see full location info below), Kristin Voigt will be speaking on “E-cigarettes and Smoking Norms: Do Concerns About the Renormalisation of Smoking Justify Regulation of E-cigarettes?” All are welcome, so please join us!

Dr. Voigt received her DPhil in political philosophy from the University of Oxford and has held post-doctoral positions at McGill, Harvard, Lancaster University and the European College of Liberal Arts. Her research focuses on egalitarian theories of distributive justice and the links between philosophy and social policy. Her recent and ongoing projects address issues such as conceptions and measures of health and health inequality; the use of incentives to improve health outcomes; (childhood) obesity; higher education policy; and smoking and tobacco control.
