Professor of Philosophy
Ph.D. University of Toronto (1998)
- Social and Political Philosophy
- International Justice
My area of specialization is political philosophy, and I am especially interested in problems of global justice, nationalism, value pluralism, equality and human rights. My teaching, which reflects these interests, includes courses on global justice, political philosophy (historical and contemporary), ethics, and specialized courses on topics such as distributive justice and equality, multiculturalism and human rights. I have also taught courses in professional ethics, philosophy of law, biomedical ethics, introduction to philosophy and comparative philosophy. See PhilPapers, my Google Scholar page and Academic.edu (coming soon) for my publications.
