    Tine Hindkjaer Madsen

    Tine Hindkjaer Madsen holds a PhD. in philosophy from the University of Copenhagen. She specializes in political philosophy and is particularly interested in the epistemic dimensions of political philosophy. Her current research centres on civil disobedience, democratic theory, epistocracy and epistemic arrogance. Her dissertation explores the complex relationship between civil disobedience and liberal democracy. Civil disobedience is an illegal mode of political protest that raises a moral problem in a liberal democracy, because there is arguably a moral duty to obey democratically enacted laws and respect the decision of your fellow citizens, even when their decisions are wrong or unjust. At the same, acts of civil disobedience can serve as a valuable tool for relieving the great injustice and the democratic deficits that can occur in liberal democracies.
