Dr Koksvik argues that benefiting from epistemic injustice in some cases generates stringent moral obligations with distinctively epistemic content. It further argues that considering cases of epistemic injustice allows us to appreciate how benefiting from injustice, as a source of moral obligations, should best be theorised more generally.
