Doctoral Research Fellow

Kerstin Reibold

Stipendiat
Department of Philosophy

Job description:

I have studied philosophy, politics, and German literature and linguistics at the University of Mannheim, Heidelberg, and Essex. During my PhD, I have spent research stays at Queen's University (Kingston, ON), the University of Oslo, and Princeton University.

My work within the “Globalizing Minority Rights” project is at the intersection of philosophy and political science. It analyses the justification of indigenous rights to land and self-determination.  Specifically, it examines how and why experiences of historic injustice change what counts as justice today and how this enables different theories of justice to accommodate indigenous rights.
