Garrath Williams

I’m based in the Pol­i­tics, Phi­los­o­phy and Reli­gion Depart­ment at Lan­caster Uni­ver­sity, where I teach and research in polit­i­cal the­ory, moral phi­los­o­phy and applied ethics.

As well as my more philo­soph­i­cal inter­ests, I’ve been involved in two research projects on child­hood obe­sity, includ­ing a community-level inter­ven­tion in eight Euro­pean coun­tries (www.ideficsstudy.eu, www.ifamilystudy.eu). I see Leapfrog as a great chance to learn more about the ethics and pol­i­tics of developing public services, and the role that different community engagement methods can play in this.
