MA (University of Leipzig), MSc (OXON), DPhil (OXON)Lecturer in Normative Political TheoryMy research is in normative political theory and political philosophy. I am particularly interested in the question of what it takes for a legal framework to treat citizens as free and equal given their relevant cultural differences. My current research regards questions of justice relating to the cultural aspects of climate change such as forced migration and cultural loss. Another strand of my current work investigates questions of responsibility and liability in the context of climate change.
