Firat Akova Awarded a Place on the Early Career Conference Programme, GPI, University of Oxford
Firat Akova, who is studying for a PhD in Philosophy, has been awarded a place on the prestigious Early Career Conference Programme (ECCP) at the Global Priorities Institute (GPI) at the University of Oxford (8 June - 3 July 2020). On this programme, each participant is required to select and focus on a particular research project of fundamental importance to the question of how to do good effectively. The culmination of the ECCP is a conference, at which Programme participants present their project and its findings. The Global Priorities Institute is an interdisciplinary research centre, and conducts foundational research into doing good, using multiple disciplines - especially philosophy and economics - to achieve an effectiveness-based approach to global prioritisation.
