Research Fellow: Dr. Katy Dineen

Katy joined the Jubilee Centre in October 2017. Prior to this, Katy worked as a teacher in a primary school in Bristol. She completed her PGCE at the University of Greenwich.

Katy has a PhD from the London School of Economics. Her thesis, ‘A Non-contingent Concept of Connectedness for Cosmopolitanism’, examined the foundations of contemporary cosmopolitan theories and argued that such theories could benefit from a Kantian approach. In particular, Kantian ideas of moral agency could prove useful for cosmopolitan theorists. Her interests include character education, as well as Kantian and Aristotelian accounts of virtue and character.

Before becoming a teacher, Katy worked as a research analyst at Goldman Sachs and a PR executive at Brunswick Group. 

Katy is currently working on the Parent-Teacher Partnerships and Character Education project.
