Research themes

Throughout the years, my main field of research has been global justice and development. This includes applications of theories of justice in the global context, critical development theory, and development policy. Many of my publications relate to extreme poverty as a problem for ethics and/or policy design.

My other major research area is political economy broadly understood. I have published on the relation between the economy and democracy, the politics of finance, taxation, and alternative economic systems. I also have a long-term interest in the classics of heterodox economics.

As I try to be a social scientist with a broad scope, I have written occasional publications also on social movements, climate, and labour issues. Currently, I am also a member of the research team Utopia as Method.
