Research interests

I am interested in all areas of contemporary political, legal and moral theory, including, for example, contemporary theories of justice, state legitimacy, and democracy.

My research specifically seeks to explain the possession of basic "human" rights through interrogating the idea often established at their foundation: Dignity. I aim to clear the current ambiguity of this notion by, among other things, attending to: the supposed rights of non-human animals, the status of and human differentiation from non-human animals, the problem of equalising status and what the recognition of Dignity amounts to.
