»Europe Today: Normative Challenges«
What moral prohibitions apply to states taking military action against terrorist groups? Do the standard principles of just war theory apply to military counter-terrorist operations or do they need to be modified for this "new" type of conflict? Under what circumstances (if any) is targeted killing of known terrorists permissible? Should states concerned with their security provide inducements to actors engaged in foreign conflicts rather than entering them directly?
The EU and Sovereign Debts
Are states entitled to default on their sovereign debts? If so, under what conditions? What principles should rule sovereign debt restructuring? What are odious debts, and how would a feasible institutional arrangement eradicate them? And why should current generations honour debts incurred by previous ones? What is the connection between sovereign debts, human rights, corruption and complicity?
The EU and Immigration
Which are the specific challenges in justice in migration faced by the EU today? How should the EU respond to the refugee crisis and, in general, to asylum seekers? Has freedom of movement translated into justice for those European citizens who temporarily or circularly migrate within the EU? And, how should (in)justice in temporary migration within the EU be theorized?
