The Faculty of Public Health has released a collection of essays reflecting on the paternalism debate in public health practice and policy.

The report was compiled by LSE Philosophy Assistant Professor Jonathan Parry, Jessica Begon (Durham University) and Farhang Tahzib (UK Faculty of Public Health). The collection contains an essay by Parry and Begon on ‘Paternalism and Public Health: Mapping the Terrain’ and is available on the homepage of The Faculty of Public Health (for free).

The report was produced as part of Jonathan Parry’s research project ‘Paternalism, Health, and Public Policy’.
