Research project

My dissertation is about personal responsibility for justice. More specifically, my aim is to develop the idea, defended by political philosopher G. A. Cohen, that a just society would not only be characterized by just institutions but also have a social ethos informed by principles of social justice. When society is characterized by such an ethos, or spirit, people would be inspired to act in accordance with what justice requires. My supervisors are Eva Erman and Simon Birnbaum.

I will spend part of the fall of 2018 as a Fellow at the Department of Philosophy, Harvard University. I have previously been a Visiting Doctoral Student at the Department of Politics and International Relations and The Centre for the Study of Social Justice, Oxford University, during the winter/spring of 2017.
