A main aim is to integrate environmental considerations into social and political theory. A current project is on Global Justice and Human Rights from an Ecological Perspective. I also work on the concept of rights. Currently I am building an interdisciplinary research programme centred on applied investigations of fairness.
My research roles at Edinburgh include being Director of the Just World Institute and a member of the Political Theory Research Group. Beyond Edinburgh, I maintain the Political Theory Email List and its Facebook group.
I can offer PhD supervision in most areas of contemporary political theory/philosophy. Especially welcome are applications in the field of international political theory and/or environmental and/or rights theory. (I am one of six political philosophers based in Politics & IR.)
