Gunter Graf, Postdoc
I studied philosophy in Salzburg where I received my PhD in 2012. Since 2008 I am a research fellow at the international research centre for social and ethical questions (ifz) in Salzburg, and since 2013 a temporary lecturer at the Department of Philosophy at the Faculty of Cultural and Social Sciences of the University of Salzburg. With April 2014 I started as a PostDoc researcher at the center for ethics and poverty research (CEPR) in the project “Social justice and child poverty”. I spent work and research stays in Peru, Brasil, Namibia and London.
At the ifz I am working at the intersection between ethical theory and moral practice, being involved in projects which aim to make a difference in the “real world”. In philosophy, I mainly work in political and social philosophy, with a focus on the capability approach and its relation to poverty and children.
I am part of the editorial board of the “Zeitschrift für Praktische Philosophie”, together with Martina Schmidhuber, Gottfried Schweiger and Michael Zichy. As a team, we also organize the German-speaking conference “Tagung für Praktische Philosophie”, an annual event in the area of practical philosophy. In addition, together with Gottfried Schweiger, I supervise the “Salzburg Contributions to Social Ethics”, the joint Working Paper Series of the CEPR and the ifz.
