Barbara Buckinx completed her PhD in Politics in 2010. She spent two years at Brown University as a research associate and is currently a postdoctoral fellow with the Center for Advanced Studies 'Justitia Amplificata' at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, Goethe University Frankfurt. Her research interests are normative global governance, global distributive justice, neo-republicanism, ideal and non-ideal theory, humanitarian intervention, and citizenship and borders. A paper on the public-private distinction in global politics is forthcoming in Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy, and another paper, on global institutional design, is included in L. Cabrera, Global Governance, Global Government: Institutional Visions for an Evolving World System (SUNY Press, 2011). She is currently working on several articles as well as on a book manuscript, Reducing Domination in Global Politics, in which she articulates an approach to normative global governance that has at its core the ideal of freedom as non-domination.
