Dr Antony Lamb
Antony's research is at the crossroads of political philosophy, law, and ethics. He is currently interested in the application of 'bottom-up' thinking skills - analysis, evaluation, criticism - to real-life problems and strategy development.
Antony was awarded a Doctorate in Philosophy at the University of Bristol, 2011. Antony's area of research concerned the moral justification of international humanitarian law. Of particular interest is the question of how the ethical basis of the laws concerning armed conflict can inform how these laws ought to respond to the changing nature of warfare in the 21st century.
In 2013, Antony's doctoral thesis was published by Routledge, under the title Ethics and the Laws of War: the moral justification of legal norms, and was subsequently included in the reading lists of organisations including NATO and the ICRC.
Antony's work for his Masters degree (Bristol) focussed on a cluster of ethical problems - our responsibility to future humans, our responsibilities to animals, and the ethics of military responses to terrorism. He also holds a BA(Hons) First Class from Open University, and a PGCE in post-compulsory eduation.
Antony has lectured for the lifelong learning departments at Cardiff and Bristol University, and also for Coleg Gwent.
