About Erik Malmqvist

I am a senior lecturer in practical philosophy at the Univeristy of Gothenburg since August 2018. I was previously a lecturer/senior lecturer at Linköping University (2012-2018) and a postdoc at Université Paris Descartes (2010-2012) and Karolinska Institutet (2009-2010). I completed my PhD at Linköping University in 2008 on a dissertation on the ethics of selective reproduction. Associate professor (docent) of medical ethics since 2013.

Research
I conduct research on various topics in applied ethics and moral and political philosophy. I am especially interested in ethical issues related to healthcare, medical research, and public health. Questions addressed by my research include:

  • Is it morally acceptable to offer people money in exchange for donating a kidney?
  • What (if anything) is morally problematic about testing new drugs on people in low- and middle income countries with limited access to healthcare?
  • What does it mean to exploit a person? And what (if anything) makes exploitation morally wrong?

My research currently focuses on the ethical challenges that arise when society tries to deal with the growing problem of antibiotics resistance. I am active in the Centre for Antibiotic Resistance Research (CARe) since 2018.

Teaching
I teach applied ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of law at undergraduate level and supervise at master’s and doctoral level. I have previously taught most areas of practical philosophy and I have large experience of teaching ethics to students in medicine and other health sciences.
