Allen Buchanan is James B. Duke Professor of Philosophy at Duke University, and is a leading philosopher on a broad range of topics in international law, morality, and human rights. He is the author of eleven books and over one hundred-fifty articles. He currently divides his time between Duke University, King’s College London, and the University of Arizona.
