Bio/Research

My research focuses on problems in contemporary social and political philosophy and normative ethics, and usually has a practical/applied or 'real world' dimension. I have written on issues of multiculturalism and 'cultural justice', especially about the ways in which cultural and religious group differences are, and are not, accommodated in liberal political theory and practice. My thinking on these topics has been much influenced by deliberative democracy theory and communicative ethics; post-colonial theory; feminist social thought; critical race theory; and neo-Marxist critiques of culture and race. More recently, I have begun to write on problems of global justice: one project, 'Subjects of Global Justice,' raises meta-ethical and meta-political questions about the normative framing of problems of global justice; and another project looks at the evolving status of social and economic human rights in both theory and practice.
