Robert is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow. His 3 year fellowship was granted to complete a project entitled 'Tragic Choices: Responding to Injustice' which will try and provide a framework for thinking about how non-compliance by others alters the contents of our duties of justice. Since finishing his doctorate in Oxford in 2009, he has taught there and at the Department, including acting as the Director of its MA in Legal and Political Theory in 2010-11. As well as research interests in partial compliance, he has also worked on critiques of contractualism in both moral and political theory, on distributive justice, and on John Rawls' interpretation of Rousseau. He will be teaching Republicanism and Liberalism in 2012-13.
