I am interested in all areas of contemporary normative political theory, with special interests in the following areas:
- theories of social/distributive justice and equality
- liberalism and republicanism
- global justice
- the intersection of political theory and political economy
- self-respect and other self-evaluative attitudes.
My work currently focuses on
- self-respect, and its role for autonomy
- what the EU needs to do for social justice
- liberal and republican justifications of workplace democracy
- just wages, different policies for achieving them, and their significance for non-domination and recognition
- the value of social equality more broadly conceived and the relevance of contemporary sociological theories and accounts of social class for it.
My monograph Justice and Egalitarian Relations has just been published with Oxford University Press (US). It develops a liberal conception of relational equality, which understands equal non-domination and prevention of inegalitarian norms of social status as stringent demands of social justice, and explores its implications for political equality, distributive justice, and health and healthcare.
For the academic year 2021/22, I will be a Political Economy Fellow at the ISRF, working on wage justice.
