Cecile Fabre is a political and moral philosopher whose work is located in Anglo-American normative thought. She is a tutorial fellow in Philosophy at Lincoln College, and a lecturer in the Faculty of Philosophy, at Oxford University. Prior to moving to Oxford, she held the Chair in Political Theory at Ednburgh University, and was a Senior Lecturer in Political Theory at the London School of Economics.

Fabre has written on distributive justice, rights, democracy, prostitution, organ transfers and surrogacy contracts. Her current work is on the ethics of war and recently completed the first of a two-volume research monograph. The first volume (published by OUP in the summer of 2012), defends a cosmopolitan theory of the just war. The second volume aims to defend a cosmopolitan account of the transition from war to peace and of peace after war.

Fabre is also on the steering committees of two research centres in Oxford, the Programme on the Changing Character of War and the Oxford Institute for the Ethics and Law and Armed Conflicts.
