Please join the MANCEPT research cluster for a seminar with Simon Caney (Warwick).
Simon's interests primarily lie in the application of political philosophy to global politics. He has written on global poverty, global distributive justice, human rights, sovereignty, global governance, self-determination, war, humanitarian intervention, and legitimate ways of resisting global injustice. He is currently completing a book entitled 'On Cosmopolitanism: Equality, Ecology and Resistance' (Oxford University Press). Simon also has an interest in ethical issues raised by climate change, particularly the relationship between human rights and climate change, the fair share of greenhouse gas emissions, the allocation of the burdens of combating climate change, the nature of our responsibilities to prevent dangerous climate change, intergenerational justice, the ethical issues surrounding some mitigation policies and the nature of a just transition to a low carbon world. He is currently completing a book on Global Justice and Climate Change (Oxford University Press) with Derek Bell. Finally, Simon has a research interest in intergenerational justice and its implications for democratic theory and institutional design, publishing on both (i) what we owe future generations as well as (ii) how we can orient democratic politics to give better protection to the legitimate interests of future generations.
