I am associate professor in practical philosophy at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, Faculty of Humanities, University of Oslo. I currently lead a three-year project entitled Political Philosophy Looks to Antarctica, which aims to look at key concepts and principles in political philosophy—like original appropriation, colonialism, just distribution and legitimate authority—through the prism of the last uninhabited continent on earth. My work so far has focused on the foundations of basic human rights and global justice (see my book The Right of Necessity), and the justification of territorial rights and rights over natural resources. I also have an ongoing interest in animal ethics, environmental philosophy, natural law theory, and the philosophers of the Scottish Enlightenment.
