My thesis is concerned with how the workings of modern democracies influence and change the way in which we ought to perceive the problem of dirty hands, i.e. the problem of doing something in some sense morally wrong and yet in some sense morally right, and how this ultimately changes the way in which we should deal with politicians who dirty their hands for us (e.g. how to ascribe responsibility, blame, and maybe even punishment).


I am grateful to the IDEA Centre for awarding me a studentship for my PhD.
