Professor, Politics and Government
Lisa Ferrari teaches in the areas of international relations and applied ethics, and U.S.-Canadian relations. Her current research examines the moral and security implications of commons-based geoengineering as a response to climate change. In particular, collaborating with Elizabeth L. Chalecki, she has applied lessons from the European just war tradition to questions of geoengineering governance and considered a role for Canada in the governance process. Her recent past research has addresses the role of moral theology in Catholic NGOs’ response to the global HIV/AIDS epidemic, and the broader role of the Holy See in international relations.
