Darrel Moellendorf appointed to Cluster Chair in International Political Theory


Darrel Moellendorf, formerly of San Diego State University where he was Director of the Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs, has accepted an offer of the professorship in International Political Theory (in succession to Gosepath). He is one of the most internationally influential political philosophers specialising in questions of global justice. Among his works in this area are Cosmopolitan Justice (2002), Global Inequality Matters (2009) and the forthcoming book Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change: Values, Poverty, and Policy.

In addition, he is co-editor of the Handbook for Global Ethics (forthcoming). His areas of research also include issues of just war, justice in transformational situations and questions of justification in political philosophy. Prior to his appointment in San Diego, Moellendorf taught at the California Polytechnic University and the University of Witwatersrand. He has received offers of professorships from the University of Birmingham, McGill University and Washington and Lee University. In 2012/13, Darrel Moellendorf was a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities of the Goethe University Frankfurt in Bad Homburg at the invitation of the German Research Foundation Centre for Advanced Studies “Justitia Amplificata”. Professor Moellendorf will begin his work at the Cluster and in Academic Faculty 3 already in summer 2013.
