Speaker at the Social Sciences Oxford Minds panel discussion series on the topic of Justice.
Zofia Stemplowska is Associate Professor of Political Theory, in the Department of Politics and International Relations, and Asa Briggs Fellow at Worcester College. Her research focuses on the problem of what people owe to each other as a matter of domestic, global and historical (post war) justice. She is also interested in the debate about ideal and nonideal theory: the problem of how to make theories of justice relevant to urgent, real world problems while avoiding ad hoc theorizing and defeatism. She is co-editor of Responsibility and Distributive Justice (with Carl Knight, Oxford University Press, 2011). She has published in Social Philosophy & Policy, Journal of Applied Philosophy, Journal of Social Philosophy, and Political Studies Review. She has also regularly written for the Times Literary Supplement.
