Consent can change our moral relationships by granting people new permissions. But it fails to do so when it is invalid. It can be invalidated when it is given under duress, such as when the consent-giver is under a coercive threat. Tom Dougherty discusses why certain forms of duress invalidate consent.
Tom Dougherty is a University Lecturer in the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Trinity Hall. He is currently a Visiting Research Professor at the University of Tulane. He primarily researches moral and political philosophy.
