Title: Multi-modal Logics for the Conceptual Analysis of Epistemic Rights

Abstract. The Deontic Logic for Epistemic Rights (DELIGHT) project proposes to combine existing and develop new logics for reasoning about epistemic rights as normative positions. In this talk, I introduce the background theory of normative positions and the notion of epistemic rights, and show how we have used different multi-modal logics for the analysis of freedom of thought and the right to know.
