Nancy Bertoldi

Associate Professor


Bertoldi’s research develops a civic conception of global justice to address the challenges of poverty and inequality as they arise in a plural world. Her work pays special attention to the role of practices of collective justification in the construal of fairness claims and the importance of preserving avenues for global civil disobedience even within broadly just multilateral frameworks. Her first book fleshes out the theoretical foundations of the civic conception of global justice through an engagement with the work of John Rawls. Subsequent work will apply this theoretical framework to global debates over trade, health, and the environment to identify fair global governance mechanisms that can promote the principled moderation of power in these issue areas.
