Academic interests

Andreas Eriksen’s main areas of interest are philosophical studies of moral responsibility, professional judgment, and public reason. His work includes articles on the nature of role moralities, the meaning of professional virtue, and the justification of welfare policy.


Eriksen holds a B.A. from the University of Tromsø and an M.A. from the University of Oslo. He has been a visiting scholar at the University of Konstanz. He earned a Ph. D. in the study of professions at Oslo and Akershus University College. His dissertation “Taking Roles Seriously. On Professional Duty and Virtue” investigated the relation between ordinary morality and professional ethics. He was subsequently researcher on the project “Between income maintenance and activation” (TREfF-2) at the Centre for the Study of Professions.


Eriksen currently works on a post-doctoral project titled “The Democratic Value of Experts.” The project will provide a normative framework for reasoning in non-elected political bodies. This work is part of ARENA’s project “Democracy and Expert Rule: The Quest for Reflexive Legitimacy” (REFLEX).
