Rob Sparrow is a Chief Investigator on a Discovery grant awarded by the Australian Research Council for a research project on ‘Good Soldiers and Ethical Soldiers’.
Along with Dr Jessica Wolfendale and Professor Tony Coady (both from the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics, University of Melbourne division), Rob will be investigating how current and future developments in military technology may affect the military’s core ethical commitments, the character of individual warfighters, and traditional applications of just war theory. The research team was granted $440,000 to conduct this project from 2007-2009.
Further details will be available here as the project progesses. Please contact Rob for further information.
