Nancy Bertoldi

Associate Professor


Bertoldi’s research explores visions of a just and peaceful global order. Her first book develops a civic conception of global justice inspired by Rawls to address the challenges of poverty and inequality as they arise in a plural world. The book explores how practices of collective justification are implicated in the construal of fairness claims and why avenues for global civil disobedience must be preserved even within multilateral frameworks that are considered to be relatively just. Her next book will apply this theoretical framework to concrete global debates over trade, health, and the environment, with the aim of proposing fair global governance mechanisms that can promote the principled moderation of power in these issue areas.
