Dr Laura Valentini, UCL

Dr Laura Valentini holds a degree in Political Science from Pavia University (Italy), and a Master’s and PhD from University College London. Prior to joining UCL, she was a Junior Research Fellow at The Queen’s College (Oxford University), and a postdoctorate at the Center for Human Values (Princeton University). Laura has held visiting positions at the Australian National University, and at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (Uppsala).

Dr Valentini’s work is situated within contemporary liberal political philosophy. She is particularly interested in international normative theory and has recently completed a book, Justice in a Globalized World (Oxford University Press, 2011), in which she develops an account of global justice steering a middle course between statism and cosmopolitanism. She has published a number of articles on international justice, human rights, and ‘ideal vs. non-ideal theory’. She is currently investigating (i) the relationship between justice and democracy at both the domestic and the global level and (ii) the relationship between theories of the just war and theories of global justice.
