Associate Professor Monique Jonas
Monique Jonas is an ethical theorist specialising in health care ethics; distributive justice in health; the relationship between the family and the state; the ethics of advising and decision-making for children.
She studied English and politics as an undergraduate and was drawn to political philosophy and ethical theory. That sparked her interest in moral status and decisions at the beginning of life. In 2005 she completed her PhD at Kings College London, exploring ethical aspects of decision-making for neonates, under the supervision of Professor Jonathan Glover. Monique began her academic career working as a research assistant for Professor Søren Holm at Manchester University, and then as a lecturer at the Centre for Professional Ethics at Keele University.
Since returning to the University of Auckland in 2010, Monique's research has focused upon parental decision-making, the status of health advice, and the ethics of advice-giving. She enjoys working in a multi-disciplinary environment in the School of Population Health.
