DRAFT / UNDER REVIEW

I’m currently working on several papers. One asks whether we can consistently refuse citizenship to migrants, while granting citizenship-rights to newborns as a matter of course. Another paper discusses the permissibility of procreation when the procreator can reasonably expect their child to grow up severely disadvantaged. Other manuscripts deal with the grounds of obligations to future generations; with the question of agency of justice; with questions of longevity and distributive justice; intergenerational non-compliance; zipper arguments in intergenerational justice and (with David Axelsen) with the question what we owe to future foreigners, combining insights for global justice and intergenerational justice literatures.
