Lecturer in Business Ethics, University of Pennsylvania
Originally from Oslo, Martin Sandbu was educated in Rouen and at Oxford, where he read Philosophy, Politics and Economics. His dissertation explores how economic methodology informs common normative principles at the level of policy evaluation and to what extent the economic way of looking at the world favors certain strands of political philosophy. He also has a general interest in international politics and international economic policy. This past year he has worked with the Commission on Macroeconomics and Health of the World Health Organisation, in Geneva and in Cambridge. He also taught courses in political philosophy and in economic theory at Harvard College and at the Kennedy School of Government. Sandbu was a doctoral fellow of the Research Council of Norway.
