In the summer of 2021, I will host the conference ‘The Ethics of Human Rights‘ at the University of Toronto.

We ask: What is the most claims to human rights can achieve? How can human rights be a starting point for making claims on the nation-state? Are human rights claims necessarily addressed to nation-states? And what alternative political visions do human rights exclude?


In the 2020-21 academic year, I ran the series ‘Ethics & Caribbean Philosophy’ at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Ethics.
