Personal profile



I usually teach at least some of the following courses:

First year:

  • Classic Readings in Politics and International Relations
  • Introduction to Political Philosophy

Second year:

  • Contemporary Political Theory
  • Modern Political Thought

Third year:

  • Social Justice: from theory to practice


I’m interested in why we disagree about morality and politics and how these disagreements bear on the legitimacy of political institutions. I also work on the methods of political theory and the relationship between moral philosophy and political philosophy. My current research explores the possibility of being both realistic about the limits of politics and critical of existing political orders by analysing concepts of political obligation and political legitimacy in relation to resistance.
