Jorge Félix Cardoso (University of Minho)
I'm a 2nd year undergrad student of philosophy at U. Minho and a 4th year medical student at the University of Porto. Regarding the future of work, I'm particularly interested in two hypothesis: either redefining work, or assuming work is going to be just for a lucky few and thinking what can be done to the rest without compromising the possibility of a just and equal society. My other interests in philosophy include, among others, rethinking how democracy is shaped by elections and theories of justice applied to healthcare.
Roberto Merrill (Centre for Ethics, Politics and Society, University of Minho)
I teach moral and political philosophy at the University of Minho, where I do research at the Centre for Ethics, Politics and Society. I'm also an associate researcher at CEVIPOF (Sciences Po-Paris). My research interests include liberal neutrality and value pluralism, egalitarian theories of justice, applied ethics, and the relationship between art and morality. Recently I published (with António Baptista) a special issue on property-owning democracy. My last co-edited book (with Daniel Weinstock) was on Political Neutrality: a Re-evaluation (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014; reviews by P.Vandamme for Ethical Perspectives, and by Laurent de Briey for Philosophiques).Before that, I published two volumes (one of them with Vincent Bourdeau) on neo-republicanism and one special issue on libertarianism. I've also published a book (with João Cardoso Rosas) on the ethical evaluation of controversial technologies in citizens’ conferences. My interest on aesthetic moralism led me to edit a special issue on art and morality.

I am a PhD candidate in political philosophy at the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Utrecht University (the Netherlands). I hold a Bachelor's degree in Religious Studies and Theology, and in Philosophy, and have received a Research Master's degree in Philosophy from Utrecht University (2017). My research project in prof. Ingrid Robeyns’ ERC-project FAIR LIMITS investigates the plausibility of ‘limitarianism’ in the area of economic resources (www.fairlimits.nl).

Yelena Yermakova (Cornell University/ University of Oslo)
My undergraduate degree is in Political Science from UCLA. I recently got my MPA from Cornell University where I focused on the the Arctic region and the obstacles it faces in light of climate change. I am interested in the interaction of public policy and political philosophy and its implications for territorial rights and governance of natural resources in the Polar regions. Currently, as part of my Doctoral dissertation, I am developing a series of essays on the future governance of Antarctica within the project "Political Philosophy Looks to Antarctica," under the supervision of Dr. Maria Alejandra Mancilla at the University of Oslo.
