Ph.D. Institution

Central European University, Hungary


I completed my Ph.D. in 2006 in Political Science at Central European University, Budapest. My Ph.D. thesis Institutions in Global Distributive Justice investigates the relation between justice of institutions and individual duties, and the bearing of this relation on arguments about the normative status of international institutions. It brings together themes in political philosophy, international relations theory, and legal theory. My papers discuss issues such as the role of international institutions in considerations of international distributive justice; the evolution and political impact of the current global institutional scheme; the relationship between the legitimacy of political institutions and distributive requirements; and the subject and scope of social justice.
I have published articles about the role of institutions in global justice and about human rights. My research interests include theories of distributive justice, political obligation, democratic theory, and international relations theory. In addition, my areas of competence include ethics, applied ethics, and legal theory.
I have recently conducted a joint research project on political obligation with George Klosko of the University of Virginia. In 2004-2005 I held a research fellowship of the Research Council of Norway at the Department of Philosophy, and at the Ethics Programme at the University of Oslo. In 2002-2003 I was a Chevening Fellow at the University of Oxford, Merton College. Between 1999 and 2006 I was a graduate student at CEU. In the meantime I also worked as a teaching and research assistant at the Departments of Political Science and Philosophy. In 2000, I obtained my MA in Political Science at CEU with a thesis entitled Liberal Nationalism and Liberal Multiculturalism. I received my BSc in Economics in 1998 from the University of Pécs
