Florian Ostmann, Global Justice Fellow

Florian Ostmann is a Ph.D. candidate in political philosophy at University College London and currently a visiting fellow at the Global Justice Program, supported by a Yale-UCL collaborative exchange scholarship. His research focuses on issues of fairness in international trade, both at the level of trade agreements between states and at the level of market interactions within international supply chains. In particular, his thesis seeks to defend an account of distributive demands, at each of these two levels, that are grounded in the relevant trade relationships themselves.

Florian’s wider areas of interest include general political and moral philosophy, bioethics and public health, business ethics, and questions at the intersection between philosophy and economics. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy and Social Sciences from Humboldt University Berlin and a M.A. in Political and Legal Theory from University College London.
