Thierry Ngosso is a political philosopher interested in global justice and more precisely in three important and interconnected contemporary issues in this field: climate change, human rights and migration. He addresses global justice from both the State/Firm division of labor and the Western/non-Western perspectives. His research has therefore a strong focus on business corporations and on comparative philosophy. Ngosso earned a PhD in Philosophy from the Catholic University of Louvain (2015) and is currently a lecturer at the department of philosophy of the Catholic University of Central Africa where he led the efforts towards the establishment of the Ethics and Public Policy Laboratory in 2019, and a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Business Ethics at the University of St. Gallen.
