    Studying Vulnerable Populations Through an Epigenetics Lens: Proceed with Caution.Katie Saulnier, Alison Berner, Stamatina Liosi, Brian Earp, Courtney Berrios, Stephanie O. M. Dyke, Charles Dupras & Yann Joly - 2022 - Canadian Journal of Bioethics / Revue canadienne de bioéthique 5 (1).
    Epigenetics – the study of mechanisms that influence and modify gene expression – is providing unique insights into how an individual’s social and physical environment impact the body at a molecular level, particularly in populations that experience stigmatization and trauma. Researchers are employing epigenetic studies to illuminate how epigenetic modifications lead to imbalances in health outcomes for vulnerable populations. However, the investigation of factors that render a population epigenetically vulnerable present particular ethical and methodological challenges. Here we are concerned with (...)

    A Duty-Based Approach to Children’s Right to Freedom from Extreme Poverty.Stamatina Liosi - 2019 - In Nicolás Brando & Gottfried Schweiger (eds.), Philosophy and Child Poverty: Reflections on the Ethics and Politics of Poor Children and Their Families. Springer. pp. 271-285.

    Why Dignity is not the Foundation of Human Rights.Stamatina Liosi - 2016 - Public Reason 8 (1-2).
    This essay questions what is argued by many scholars today, namely that the moral concept of human dignity provides the basis for the establishment of human rights. More specifically, I critically discuss the two most prominent conceptions of human dignity, the ‘status’ and the ‘value’ conceptions of dignity, which are suggested today as the foundations of human rights. Ultimately, I propose a different, ‘duty-based’ philosophical account for the justification of the latter.
