My research interests have mainly to do with ethics, political philosophy and the philosophy of law. I am focusing on contemporary theories of justice and democracy, both the justification of fundamental rights and the institutional mechanisms for enforcing them. I am interested in political liberalism and its multiculturalist implications, the issue of public reason and deliberation, and in constitutionalism and legal argumentation.
As part of the Chair’s activities, I am conducting a research program on institutions of tolerance with a political dimension that also applies to moral psychology and the philosophy of education. In 2011-2012, I also began studying the issue of corruption in and of democracy. Since 2012, I have been co-ordinating the CORDÉ Corruption et démocratie research group.
