Cécile Fabre and Jeremy Waldron elected as Fellows of the British Academy

We are delighted to report that Cécile Fabre, Professor of Political Philosophy and Fellow of Lincoln College, has been elected as Fellows of the British Academy.

Before being appointed to her present post at Oxford, Professor Fabre held a Professorship in Political Theory at the University of Edinburgh. She is currently working on a two-volume monograph, for OUP, on the ethics of war. She has also written on distributive justice, rights, democracy, prostitution, organ transfers and surrogacy contracts.

Jeremy Waldron, Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory in the Department of Politics and International Relations and a member of the Oxford Philosophy Faculty, has also been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy. Professor Waldron’s research interests include constitutional theory, law and philosophy, legal philosophy, and political theory. His latest book, Torture, Terror, and Trade-offs: Philosophy for the White House, was published by OUP in May 2010. He is a Fellow of All Souls College, and continues to hold a University Professorship in Law at New York University.

The British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the promotion of the humanities and social sciences. It is an independent, self-governing body of more than 900 Fellows. Speaking about the latest additions to the Academy’s Fellowship, Sir Adam Roberts, President of the Academy, said: “I congratulate all the distinguished Fellows who have been elected to the Academy this year, on achieving this peer group recognition of the outstanding contribution they’ve made to scholarship and research in the humanities or social sciences. Election is not only an honour, but also a beginning. I look forward to their active participation in the life and work of the Academy.”

The British Academy, established by Royal Charter in 1902, champions and supports the humanities and social sciences. It aims to inspire, recognise and support excellence and high achievement across the UK and internationally.
