Isabella Trifan

Department of Political Science and Public Management


Isa Trifan is a Postdoc at the Centre for Welfare Studies and the Interdisciplinary Centre on Population Dynamics. She is a political philosopher working on normative distributive justice theories, family justice, care theory, and population ageing. At SDU she will collaborate with Prof. Pieter Vanhuysse on an interdisciplinary research project on how welfare states ought to balance the competing claims to social care resources on the part of the elderly, sick or disabled working-age people, and children in a context of population ageing. Before joining SDU, Isa was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Concordia University’s Social Justice Centre, in Montreal. She holds a PhD in Political Philosophy from Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona, and spent some time as a visiting student at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, at Oxford.
